how often do u feel deppression? when ur at that stage what do u do to forget it or anyway so that u can express how depress u are? do u go to mall and went on window shopping just to forget for awhile, or do u eat a lot so in way u can express it totally? before when im deppress i cant eat, i remember one time where i was heart broken for the first time, when ever i go to the table and eat my first attempt to eat i cant swallow. worst i only eat 1 tablespoon a meal, i just cant help it my appetite were lost. but now its different, i take deppression not to much, so that it wont absorb too much in my mind and in my system. when i feel deppress in a certain situation or to someone i just make myself to have fun like go to the mall and buy stuff i like, or just go on window shopping. how about u, how do u deal with ur deppression? do u still handle deppression well or sometimes its uncontrolable?

Everyone feels "Blue" at certain times during his her life. In fact, transitory feelings of sadness or discouragement are perfectly normal, especially during difficult times. But a person who cannot "snap out of it" or get over these feelings within two weeks may be suffering from the illness called depression. What is depression? The term depression can be confusing since it's often used to describe normal emotional reactions. At the same time, the illness may be hard to recognize because its symptoms may be so easily attributed to other causes. People tend to deny the existence of depression by saying things like this "She has a right to be depressed! Look at what she has gone through." This attitude fails to recognize that people can go through tremendous hardships and stress without developing depression, and that those who suffer from depression can and should seek treatment. Depression is total anxienty and tension in my point of view. We can come out of dilemma by making new friends and having fun in life. So keep rocking!!!

yeah i think ur explanation about depression is right. i guess there are people who cant balance on what they are feeling does sometimes they decide on certain things they surely regret. others just knew how to deal with it and make things that can help them forget or lessen the depression they feel. thanks for your response and i accepted ur invitation as friends..goodluck!

Although both the answers to the question are technically correct and for that I commend them there are a lot of people who don't know the difference so for them its the same thing. Although the hard times we go through in life might not be related to the illness you still need to deal with it regardless. So to this end I would argue that for a balanced answer to the question there needs to be both the answers aforementioned (to make it clear to people that there is a difference) and practical help for those of us sometimes get down and who might feel like its just as bad. I hope that makes as much sense in my heas as it does to you. Although its not positive and chirpy the way I have learned to deal with is realizing that the alternative to pushing on and making the best of life is giving up and thats not much of an option to me. No matter what life throws at me its just a test of resolve and I say bring it on. I don't subscribe to the "everything will get better" or "At least I still have x" but I just know that feeling aorry for myself isn't going to achieve anything and is a waste of my limited time here.
