That you don't even want to do some thing because all you want is to cry hard and don't even want to talk to anyone?

I'm depressed at the moment but with good reason, I lost my husband to Cancer at the beginning of April. Some days I just don't want to get out of bed, I don't want to talk to anyone and I don't want to do anything at all. I don't like people seeing me cry so most of the time I try to carry on as if life is 'normal'. Having to get up to go to work and having a house full of pets to look after helps. I think everyone gets depressed at various times in their lives, but I've also suffered from 'Clinical depression' and nursed people with it, which is horrible. That's why I try so hard to stay positive, I don't want to let it get a hold and become an illness!

My condolences to you. I really feel the pain in your situation but I know God has very good plans to all of us and we would all be better in time.

I agree with the first responder, most people go through this point when they feel so depressed. I, for instance is on my lowest these past few days due to some personal reasons. But I don't entertain depression as it will only make things worse. Instead I do productive things and believe that these things will pass, as mentioned in the Bible. Sometimes I cry, but I just cry alone. I don't want people to see my crying but once I cry, I cry hard--hard enough to just forget about it and move on with my life. I'd rather not talk to anyone about it, just a few trusted friends or to God. Often times I just pray about it and the power of faith really works. Personally I have a strong faith in God and you're really at your strongest when you just accept that things happen for a reason and you submit to God everything--including your problems and let God do something about it and do your part also.

Hi there. I admire the faith you have and the things you do to feel better whenever you are down. I hope by this time you are alright already. I believe that praying really helps, not only during times of depression but in everything in our life.

Most time, its my work..with ontime deliveries and work loads. I try to divert mind on music and i feel better. We need to manage depression, as it is part of life in busy world. But if we concentrate, we can manage it. I does it through my yoga, listening music and going out on vacation.

Yeah for about a year while I was at a really low point I ended up not being able to leave the house because I just couldn't face everyday life. At the slightest small thing like if someone looked at me and didn't smile I would end up crying. I felt like I couldn't speak to even my family and got behind with my college work too. It felt like no one understood and it took me a very long time to go to the doctors about it because while I was feeling so rubbish I didn't even care about feeling better. Crying in bed all day really seemed like the best thing I could do with my life because then at least I would be alone and no one would bother me. I still get like that now but less often and certainly not every day. I think everyone feels this way sometimes though but it's when it happens so much it gets in the way of your life that you need to go and ask for some help

for 3 years, I had to be on meds for it. I was 12, 12 and 14. Sadly, I almost killed myself... if you feel that way for over 2 weeks, get help.

Yes I found myself very much depressed a lot of times. I have so many problems that I don't know what will I solve first. I don't know what will I do in my life. I just want to stop all of this, I want to stop all the pain I am feeling right now. I want some peace of mind oh God please do help me.
