Ever since science has evolved a lot of changes has been brought about in the world of medicine....transplants, surgeries, bypass surgeries, etc etc.....but I was wondering is there a tangible medicine that could be applied to our emotional wounds....well, some may say yes....there are many kinds of medicines available for depression, etc.......but think about this....Is it a permanent cure ????? I think more that we need to be emotionally strong.....we can off course temporarily relive ourselves from taking those medicines or some may even resort to alcohol as a temporary depressant.....but I am sure all of us at some point in our lives must have gone through some emotional defeats which were beyond control....it had happened to me and I had almost gone to a vegetative state......I had difficulties in eating, sleeping and many such disorders....but I guess its only time that heals all these wounds.....it still haunts me but then its reduced.....i think there is no quick escape to these emotional wounds.....what do you feel about this ???? How do you think can emotional bruises be managed or looked after ????? Regards, John

Everyone gets emotionally bruised sometimes leaving permanent scars. But all scars do not hurt because they have been healed but they do remind us of events gone by. One. You need to work out your own brakes on not to get emotionally charged as all those medicines are temporary. As you rightly said time is the healer. Cling on to it and do nothing. The situation will dilute somewhat and then tackle the issue step by step.

As far as a magic pill to cure the emotion pains that we face in our lives, I'm afraid that there is none. However, I think that there is a cure for our emotional bruises. That cure is time and support. It takes time for the injuries that we have to ourselves to heal and the healing process is made much easier for individuals if we have the support of the people that are in our lives. I know this works for me because I thought I would never be whole again after my father passed away, but one day after it I woke up and I felt normal again. It took a lot of time, but when I felt complete, I was so very happy.

Learn to love yourself that is the simplest cure. Do not let yourself down because everyone does. We all have pains. I've been hurt badly as much as you do. Been crying in bed, drinking sometimes, but I am still ALIVE! LOL! When you cry you cry alone, what's the use? Oh it's healthy to have a good cry but it is healthier to laugh your troubles out. Try not to think too much. Make yourself busy with Mylot! You'll be happy on cash-out! Have a nice day!

First off, I don't believe any chemical substance can have a lasting effect on depression. All it can do is cover up the depression for some time and damage a person's organs if there is long term use. There are, however, some natural ways to help combat depression. Some of them include getting enough oxygen into the system. This can be achieved through breathing exercises and spending time outdoors. Get enough Sun. The Sun contains so much energy that it can lift a person's energy levels dramatically. Another is good exercise. Getting the blood flowing and being in peak physical shape also helps in combating depression. Positive mental activities such as meditation, reading inspiring books, being around positive people, going to spiritual places and the like also help. Finally, eating fresh natural foods will also give extra energy to combat the lethargy produced by depression.

Emotional pain is the hardest to deal with, and understand. A doctor can diagnose a condition, but just as our bones are unique to us so are our emotions. You and I could go through the exact same situation, and we would heal differently. The best remedy for pain and depression is something that most people wouldn't consider. The light with in our selves. Alot of scientists have found that the sun even the moon has weight over our emotional status. The sun is bright and beautiful, warm and healing that is why we reference it in religious terms. But inside us there is a light to. There is a joy and peace that we hold from past experience. That is what I hold on to when it gets to hard. Sometimes you need to let it all break down, to realize the blessings we do have. They have natural suppliments like gynsing, and saint john's wart to balance our physical chemicals. But things like your first ride on a bike, or jump out of an air plane is equivalent to adrenaline. It makes you smile and gives you the thrill of your first experiences. When you loose something you find yourself wondering if it was worth it at all if you have to deal with the pain, but you wouldn't be hurting if it didn't really mean something to you. the more it matters, the more it hurts. There is no quick fix. you can't throw a bandaid on something that needs stitches and call it a day. You have to grieve and face what ever is bothering you. You have to accept it and try to see the purpose in it. and time i have to say is a bull remedy. It doesn't get better in time, only easier to ignore, but once you are reminded the wounds are fresh as ever. So to look after your emotional damage, you have to be honest about it. You rely on people who have been there and find your own medicine. You would not be given any challenge if you could not handle it.

It seems to me that prescription medications can sometimes have a laundry list of potentially horrible side effects. Pretty scary actually. I came across an alternative medication, Amoryn. This alternative medication was developed with some sound clinical research and has an extremely high success rate. You should check it out -- http://www.amoryn.com/help_depression.html

Hi john, I personally think that the only real way to get thru an emotional crisis is to face it head-on and plunder through it. Painful? Yes, very but if you set yourself a goal that you want to lead a happy and rewarding life and syke yourself into it, it can be done. When you get thru and beyond it, you will be that much stronger and confident.

John4Christ time helps also taking life one day at a time, I have had one awful past year but at 83 if I can pull myself through my sons being out of work, us being evicted, my having to live here in a retirement center instead of our home with my son and myself, you can also survive and pull yourself up out of the quagmire you were in.;life each day is a gift from God so take it and be grateful. you are alive.take it one day at a time,be happy one day at a time, and think of other people, help someone and forget yourself for awhile, it works trust me.Nobody can make us happy, we have to make our selves happy. do it smile laugh you may find you really are happy.

Hi, John I agree. Time is the only cure for emotional wounds. Time and the willingness of the person to move on and the determination to become happy. Of course, the support of his loved ones can make these cures work faster. Take care!

Hey my friend, its been so long I haven't heard from you nor because I do am often here too. Well about your topic on emotionally being bruised, we know that the most we can think of of being bruised was God specially when His creation is rejecting Him and it happens every minute of the day on how man denies Him as God. Whenever we are bruised or crushed, we do know that we have hope in Christ our Savior. I only think of this, Christ gave himself for us and He has suffered the most and my own suffering is not even 1/4 of what He had endured on the cross. So whenever you think of yourself, think of Christ and I am sure that you will be much more thankful of His love for us. This is the world, we as Christians are already told that we will have trials, tribulations and persecutions in life as a testing of our faith. Just keep your focus with God and run the race. Persevere and never doubt your faith. Never look of what you can see in this world, because what you see here will perish. Walk with Faith and live by the Spirit because what is unseen is eternal. Philippians 3:14 James 1:2-4

I doubt if there is anybody who has not been through hurts, both physical and emotional. And it is not once in lifetime hurt either. There will be others as well. But look at it like this, you can walk away from it all, and never feel any love for anybody, or take the risk off and on, enjoy the crests and troughs. If you know no love, you know no pain. Is that what you want? It is like eating bland food.

Whoever said time heals all wounds never had any large wounds inflicted on them (or at least that is what I believe). I think that every day, we pick up more and more baggage, both emotionally and physically. All we need to do is learn how to handle the load.

Dear John4Christ In the world, every one faced and also facing this experience in their whole life... But every one is differ from this point, that how much and how a person take that emotions into his/her heart.... But I am sure about one thing that is called "Expectations", this will injures our heart more and more.... Because every one must expect something from his/her friends or relatives or loved/closed ones directly or indirectly... If his/her expectations can't fulfilled or satisfied by that particular person means then we feels the results in the form of pain or emotional wounds or something else as per our wish... I am 100% sure about this... So first we shall decide to make comfort by "Don't expect anything from anyone" means then surely we shall avoid maximum of the emotional wounds...

Time, support from friends and family, and self motivation is the best medicine.
