The problem of life long depression

February 1, 2008 9:03am CST
Many people are chronically depressed and have struggled with depression through out their life.They remember being depressed even when they were in Kindergarten or the first grade since they grew up with the problem,they take it to be a part of their essential nature and not a matter for professional help.They don't tell others about their problem for being viewed as either crazy or weak.Some don't tell even their partners because "they won't understand" or "it's difficult to explain.

I've had to deal with life long depression and as much as getting professional help is a key doesnt take the depression away..It just gives me a better understanding of it and different, healthier ways to cope.... I'll ALWAYS have to deal with depression...partly because we believe its in my bloodline but more than that because there has been and is to this day too much trauma that has gone on....
