Depression

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

    1. I just want to add that if you feel that there is no one you can talk to in real life there are organisations you can call or even email and they really help. Remember it is a disease and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it, just like people aren’t ashamed of broken arms.

    2. You sound like a miserable person to be around!

      Apparently you have no feelings about anybody's medical problems, just wait your turn is coming; nobody stays healthy forever!

      If by using the c word you are inferring the it is just a woman's issue then you are wrong, or is it because you know a women with depression and do not like her because of it?

  3. Except of course if you are disabled. Then people rush to off you, put pictures of the smiling you on magazine covers, and depressed, sick, or disabled you on the inside pages with justification after justification for offing you, as if what you LOOK LIKE - your failure to live up to your former youthful beauty - is reason enough to kill you. And if every moment of this life is not precious, even if it involves pain, because it also involves connection. Next time, draw the sad man in a wheelchair, and see if you can get past your own prejudice on this issue. They try to kill us everyday and write articles about how we should be dead. It's not true for us either. We just want to live, even if it looks different, and when we don't, that's depression too

    1. Being sad or upset over something is not clinical depression like this is talking about.

      I have epilepsy and it has kept me from doing a lot of things I would love to have done and I had to worry everyday about if I was going to have a seizure or not; none of that was clinical depression.

      I did end up having it when my seizures got worse, because it is a physical part of epilepsy. Until I had a right temporal lobectomy and before I knew if the seizures had been stopped my depression was gone.

  4. Approaching people about this subject can be hard to do. Sometimes you don't to be invasive or you just don't feel like it's your place to bring up something so personal. You can help by doing other things though, like bringing people ice cream or asking them to lunch.

    Sometimes, that's all people need.
