Have you ever felt like you were suffering pervasive feeling of sadness, disruption of sleep patterns--insomnia or hypersomnia,disturbance in appetite and weight,listlessness,lack of interest,diminished in memory and concentration,low self-esteem and feelings of guilty,what's even worse,you have the horrible thought of suicide sometimes? Yeah,if you fit severals of these symptoms above,you may be suffering depression right now.I suffered depression when I was at college.I felt lost that time,had pervasive feeling of sadness,diminished in memory and concentration,didn't have self-esteem and felt guilty all the time.Yes,I withdrew myself from all my friends and other social events,even thought about suicide. I was under lots of pressure those times.I went to seek the advice of a physician ,but she didn't make me feel any better.So I dropped out my college at finally,cause I didn't think I could make it. Thank God I am OK now,I guess it's because all the pressure has long gone. If you ever had such problems,how did you worked it out?Did you seek help from a physician?

I went through a lot of what you are talking about and was finally diagnosed with bi polar. Now I'm on medication and I'm doing much better.

you can term this mental state to be in depression too.it happens when you're not happy with some circumstance in your life.it could also be a result of a relationship which steeres you through this state of mental affairs.what once can do to get out of this is to seek professional help and also seek help from your family and loved ones.You can try meditation to change your thought process and try an dbe happy about our life.

Nope, i have not suffered from depression b4.. But i know it's a painful and long process b4 one can really recover form it.. U need patience and dtermination plus lotsa care and love from family members.. But most of the time, ple suffer from depression without they themselves knowing untill ple tell them.. But one way to beat depression b4 they find u, is thru relaxation.. Learn to relax and exercise, u will be less likely to suffer from depression ^_^

Yes even i suffered from all the above things, It started when i lost my dad when i was in 10th, i didnt got any help( after 10th-it was my college time as well) i used to lock my self in a room, never used to say any thing, i was so depressed i was thinking new way to sucide. but i dont now how i came over from this. i didnt had any one with whome i can share or talk. Then i started writing diary and then i was ok, use to cry in front of my diary and my diary helped me to come out of this. plese all friend in mylot, if any one in your family is doing so, give him lots of love. dont ignore them. or say any hard words. these people have not interse in living, are dying from inside any wrong thing happens they will surly die.
