Depression. A Sudden Darkness.

Even though Mental Health is in the news frequently these days, depression is still often recognised or acknowledged.  And it seems to me that a lot of different emotions are bundled together and labelled Depression.

Bach Flower Remedies is a brilliant and highly successful way of treating depression (of any kind), but first you must select the remedy that suits you best.  This can be tricky, so I have 2 FREE guides to help you choose.  Bach Flower Remedy Guides

There’s one depression that seems to affect so many.  And there are two key characterises of this depression.  And if they describe your depression, then this remedy is for you.

Molly’s story

There was something wrong but Molly couldn’t put her finger on what it was.  She felt tried. No. She was more than tired – she was weary.  To use her gran’ma’s words (although old fashioned they explain just how Molly felt) she was filled with melancholy and was in a deep gloom.  And the most annoying thing (but Molly didn’t really have the energy to be annoyed) she didn’t know why or where this terrible feeling had come from.

Sudden depression

Where did this feeling come from?  She was fine and then suddenly, out of the blue, her world turn black and dark – into what everyone called, ‘depressed’.  How Molly hated that word.  It sounded so ‘dark’ and final.  But she couldn’t find a reason for being so low.  There was no logical reason for this terrible gloom that had beset her.


Molly really didn’t feel like doing anything.  She couldn’t even be bothered to watch junk on the TV.  But the sofa seem to have a magnetic attraction.  Time passed slowly and she seem to lie there for ages, sometimes dozing and sometimes not.

But it didn’t help how she felt.  She dreaded her friends calling as she didn’t have the energy to listen or talk to them – and anyway, she knew she’d end up crying she they asked her how she was!  It  seemed she cried about everything and had no control over it!

Molly was heavy with the weight of these feelings and she was unable to pull herself out of it.  She usually could change her emotional state by changing her thoughts – but not this time.

She was at the mercy of this feeling that seemed to have a life of it’s own –  it was out of her control.


Molly needed Mustard.  Winston Churchill referred to his depression as a ‘black dog’.  If you’re in need of Mustard, you feel as if a black cloud suddenly descends on you and you live in this heavy fog of what is called depression.  Apart from not knowing why it came, you have no idea if it’ll ever go away.

But then, one day – it lifts  – as suddenly as it came.

If you can related to any three of the above feelings, then Mustard will lift the cloud and let the light of joy return to your life.

Although Mustard is one of the most commonly bought remedies, there are 38 remedies and all have the same powerful ability to change your feelings and so change your life.  Click here to get your FREE guides to the Bach Flower Remedies.
