Me too! Really! On both accounts.
As omega-3 fatty acids may have such benefits, if that is good science logically an apple may go upwards when it leave the tree. Due to gravity an apple may fall down, or it might fall up. Correct by your logic of proof.diamond lady wrote:Conclusions: Omega-3 fatty acids may have therapeutic benefits in childhood depression.
I don't think anybody has ridiculed Andrea - there is 100% support for her in this thread. The hostility is wholly directed at Diamond Lady because posters perceive her as advising Andrea to forgo professional medical help in favour of alleged quackery. FWIW, I agree with you insofar as a healthy diet and environment are important for one's mental as well as physical health, but that's a bit of a no-brainer; the problem here is that if she has clinical depression and not simply feeling down in the dumps, she needs (and was rightly seeking) professional help from a qualified psychiatrist who can diagnose the appropriate course of medication as well as counselling about lifestyle changes as so on.Don-Pierre de Plume wrote:Andrea needs someone to talk to.

Certainly, many people won't get happy in the Western world. However, the Western world takes care of you, in case you can't do that yourself. In Cambodia (and many asian countries), this probably isn't going to happen (unless you manage to meet an individual who does feel pity with you). So in general, in Cambodia, you're going to die, when you can't take care of yourself. Which is usually the long term situation with mental illnesses.andreahoch3 wrote:v12, actually I don't know if the Western world makes me happier. I got first depressed when I lived in Finland (for 5 years). And actually I also came back to Cambodia because I was happier here. Because the people are much warmer than say in Germany.. That is just a fact! I have to say that about my own country. When I went back last year for a few months I was not happy there. People were complaining all the time, my family expects me to live the life they want, the people, the neighbors, many do not care about each other. Of course, Khmer people have their bad sides, too. But for me they are much warmer and more hospitable than Germans. So, yes I will go back to Germany for a while to get myself sorted (education, psychotherapy) but then I plan on coming back here. But, I generally agree with you. I have heard a lot about people getting f***ed up in Cambodia. Drugs, alcohol and so on.

I have spent the last 4 years volunteering in psychiatric projects in China and Ethiopia. Though I am going to be returning to the US, and this is a short trip (21 days), I wanted to become more involved in mental health in Cambodia. There is certainly the idea that there is a crisis in mental health in Cambodia, given Cambodia's recent history. I would love to hear about this from the people who actually are here experiencing the actual life here, as opposed to reading journals on the subject.
