the older i get, the more times i have that i feel sometimes very down and depressive, and there is no special reason. I cant describe it and always try to find a reason for it, but there is none. i am just down, very down, for some time. When i was younger, i didnt have these feelings. Is this normal? do you also feel like this? is this a question of age or i am gonna start to be sick and develop a real depression?

Well Rubiana, I think that every human being, during his/her life, gets depressed and so can experience the most devastating feeling. Me too I happen, from time to time, to experience depression and I'm so bad.... but in my case there is always a reason that gets me a depression, on the contrary you get depressed for no special reason. You say that you are getting old, in truth you are still young, maybe you lived some sad experiences and so, on a psychological plane, you sometimes get depressed. To me the only thing that can defeate depression is the desire of living.
