From the Golden Rule to recent business strategies incorporating charity work, helping others has always been the best stress reliever and anti-depressant. Help others and you help your self. If you are depressed because of your illness, then look at your neighbor who can’t even afford to buy medicines. Helping others, especially those poorer and sicker than you, will make you feel more fulfilled and floating with a different “high”. Surely, it will improve the quality and quantity of your life. Try it.
