The Secret to Alzheimer’s Depression

The Secret to Alzheimer’s Depression

Emma Knox

     People consider childbirth one of the most painful things someone can experience. They’re dead wrong. Childbirth, at the very least, ends. It has a certain duration and then it’s over– and even in the pit of it, you know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The pain is worthwhile, it’s tolerable, and there’s a reason. But with Alzheimer’s, and with depression, there is no reason. There is no reason and there is no light and there is no end. It’s an infinite, invisible, nameless pain. One in every three deceased seniors had Alzheimer’s (or another form of Dementia), one in every five of them had depression too, and everyone diagnosed with Alzheimer’s has a three- to ten-fold greater risk of dying by suicide. Nobody would choose that over childbirth. So tell me: don’t you think it tops the “most painful” list? (Yes. It does.) But people giving birth have help–they have epidurals, warm pools, etc–whereas people with Alzheimer’s and/or depression don’t. They have in-patient care. Debilitating pills. Misery. Now, they have an option: they have CBD. It’s not an epidural, but it’s damn well something. It can help lessen extraordinary hurt.

     When you have Alzheimer’s, your life isn’t your life anymore. It’s a life, sure, but it isn’t yours. You can’t do everything you used to, not without struggle, and you can’t interact with people the same. If you were a family- and friend-less hermit who watched television all day every day, then your life may be the same after diagnosis… but otherwise, you’re sheer out of luck. It gets harder every day, everything that used to come easily, and you’re upset. You’re devastated. You’re pissed. You’re developing depression. Which in turn, makes everything even more difficult. Now, on top of your Alzheimer’s symptoms, you have depression symptoms too. You can hardly get out of bed. You cry and you scream and you’re enduring mental illness from all ends. You’re long beyond unhappy.

     There are more “solutions” to depression than there are hairs on your body. If you look, you’ll be able to find an obscene amount… enough to keep you busy forever. But here’s the trap: they’re person- and case-specific, most are too expensive for an average worker, and not many are scientifically-backed. If you try antidepressants, it’ll likely take years to find the right medication and dosage… and even then, are the side effects worth it? Is the cost? But CBD is worth the find. It’s, for the most part, one-size-fits-all, it won’t flatten your wallet, and it is scientifically-backed. Especially for depression.

     CBD can be taken various ways (oil, gummy, topicals), of which you can choose the easiest for you, and it can benefit you, too, a variety of ways: it’s mainly used for pain relief, sleep, and alleviating anxiety/depression, but there are a great deal more uses. What you need to know, though, is how it will benefit your loved one’s (or your) depression with Alzheimer’s. Here’s how: it alleviates stress, decreases anxiety, and positively affects your brain’s reaction to serotonin. It’s an all-natural aid that will leave you feeling better. You’ll wake up in the morning, feeling terrible, but then you’ll take some CBD… and maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to get out of bed without crying. NobleCanni can help you take that step… All you have to do is walk with us.
