All it takes is one negative thought and it downslides from there. It is so much easier to be negative then it is to be positive. When so many things start to go wrong that you can't think straight, it is so hard to see the silver lining. I know. That is a pretty pic, is that your baby?

Dania, depression is a scary thing. I have had bout with it and clinical depression runs in my family. When you become depressed you lose passion for everything...life, love, yourself, maybe even your kids. If you don't find someone to talk to, to vent to, it may get worse and you don't want that. I had to find someone to talk to. Get out with your friends, have some me time. Excercise helps. I am going through the same thing..kinda. I have recently become a stay-at-home mom and it is totally new to me. I can't get out due to money shortage, gas prices are to high and my friends live to far away. So, in a way I am right there with ya. If it doesn't get under controll it wil get worse. I find that when I get excercise and get involved with things I feel better.

Well, there was some point in my life when I was so depressed and bored of my life. Sometimes I feel like ending it. Yes, all the passions that I have will be gone when I loose passion in life. But when everything is back to normal my passion on things goes back!

i think that we all get depressed. anyways there are severe forms of depression depending upon the causes and tha amount of effort a person puts forth to be able to overcome it. some people are resilient to stress and are therefore less susceptible to depression. however in an increasingly harmful world, more and more people are subjetc to feel depressed by the different failures and frustrations of the different faces of life. i recommend that if you recognize that you are losing your passion and you feel down, though this is hard to do, try and liven up yourself, avoid being alone, avoid isolating yourself. even if you would like to be alone, force yourself to be around people. that way you become less depressed and less likely to think of harmful or dangerous things. if the depresssion is persistent and is interfering with your daily routine or daily activities then i suggest you talk to a counselor or a psychologist.

When you are depressed people think you could just snap out of it and it's just you. People do not understand how depression works and they think "she'll get over it". Turns out it is a more serious issue than you would think. I don't really get depressed, I know people who do. My mother had an aneurysm and she is always in some other world worrying about something such as financial issues and such. Me and my sister look at her at dinner time and ask her until she tells us what's wrong with her and eventually she'll get so annoyed she will. She is a great mom and i never understood why she just seems so drained. She kind of loses her passion. Her passion was her job, she works for the federal government keeping out terrorists and such. But one way to help yourself is you need to keep yourself occupied at all times and seek medical treatment. It's an imbalance of brain chemicals. Could become a serious issue.

Depression is something that is so misunderstood. People think that when others are depressed they are just on a pity party, but that simply is not true. I have been so depressed in the past I did give up and all my passion was gone. Fortunately, I had children to take care of and that kept me going. I went through a very heartbreaking divorce and had to start all over again with a young teenager, a preteen, and a 7 year old. I had always been very active in church, and my faith in Jesus is what kept me from going off the deep end. I finally had to seek a doctor's advice and was put on anti depressants which helped. I am still on a very mild one at this time and it makes such a difference. What has caused your depression? Donna
