I am so lucky that until now I haven't suffered from any depression. Actually, I don't want to. I guess it's a very difficult stage in our life. I admire people overcoming their depression. We have ups and downs at certain times of our lives. I hope all of you are in good condition now and free from any depression. Happy mylotting everyone.

Whew! That's a good thing you haven't tried this kind of stage. If ever, you might read about the Kubler-Ross Stages. It is only a learning insights to know about how people feel when they are in a state of depression.

I wouldn't call depression a normal down during ups and downs... depression is the pit, the lowest point of the valley, the gutter. I've had ups and downs. Depression felt like a black hole. I wouldn't say I've overcome my depression, I feel kind of like it's a monster that's following just two steps behind me. I crawled out of that hole with baby steps, thanks to therapy, family support, and medicine. I have good days again, but I still feel like that monster is hanging over my head, stalking me. Sometimes I'm afraid that it's going to chase me for the rest of my life.

good day to you, upon reading your post, its great to know that you have not yet suffered from that kind of situation. as it is really painful to be at that state. that although you have problems, you were able to find abrupt solutions on that. hence for sure, a lot of people adores you for that.

I also do not like falling into the stage of depression. Rather I am able to avoid to a good extent now. I am learning this and have applied to a good extent. I have learned the fact that it has no beginning and no end. All we need is to stay calm and fight to an extent we can.

It is so difficult to be in this stage , good God has given us gift of various defense mechanism so we can combat this depression. But so sad to know some people really went to psychological problem because they don't know how to use these various Defense Mechanism.
