There are about 7b people on the planet.There are millions, if not billions, who are suffering from this afflicton. If we examine underlying causes, we find that each person suffers due to one's unique and so, I am depressed ..and so on Why make an issue out of it? Why not treat it a part of life. It looks as though we found out another alibi for not being O.K? More such at How do you respond?

Well true, depression causes attacks and most health problems, its highly dangerous and hence we should learn to manage depression.

Even when your life seems to be going great, depression is seperate from that. I have a happy life, wonderful husband but the depression is still there. Let me descibe the feeling of depression. No interest or pleasure in anything. I do find pleasure in my husband and a good meal but that is about it. All I want to do is stay in my pajamas and not leave the house. All I want to do is sleep. Any kind of stress or lack of sleep makes the depression alot worse. I use to get excited just going to wal-mart, you know just the little things, but not anymore. I could cry over nothing and I think to myself, I have to live the rest of my life like this? It even makes me think that dieing would be easier, and I never thought I would ever have those thoughts in my life. Depression comes upon on you like a Dark cloud, a pending gloom that is the way it is for me anyway. So the circumstance in someones life, like you said "so and so happened"...that is seperate from depression, I have things that happen that I don't like and I try and fix it and deal with it, but real depression is seperate from that, when you have real depression it is not about what is happening, it is all about feelings and emotions that are out of your control. And also if something happens on top of the depression it makes it alot worse. Am I making any sense to you? Welll just thought I would try and explain what real depression feels like.

Suffering from depression myself, I was interested in this topic. It is a part of life. Sometimes it might be more of a problem than other times, but there is nothing that we can really do about it.
