Thank you for posting EJ,Depression is a horrible chemical imbalance that affects so many and so many not gotten any therapy and our State of Washington has one of the highest suicide rates in the country,sad,but true.Finding a therapist is difficult where I live,which makes it more challenging for myself and those in my area.Our darkish gloomy winters can be very challenging for us that have depression and my family doctor recommenced vitamin D,we have such low amount of sunshine.My doctor also recommends a vacation yearly to a very sunny warm place,I wish I had the income to do this.My dh's Aunt and Uncle go to Arizona in November until spring and they love it down there and feel mentally and physically better.I have had Depression and some other health issues that doesn't help,but I manage and find Joy in my time on Spark and chatting with friends and keeping myself busy and try to find joy as much as I can.I have some days that are so horrible,the crying the feelings of yuck and sadness.I just ride the storm out and know tomorrow will be a better day.I have taken medications for over 10 years and have found some relief,but it's just a band aid and I have just about tried every antidepressant and not found the cure.MY personal advice for mental health conditions is to find a therapist that will help you and not push drugs you don't want and listen to you and spends time with finding a treatment plan that best suits your wants,needs and condition best.They have chemical blood tests they can administer to get to the root of your mental health conditions to give you a better diagnosis and treatment plan.They also have Pet scan to better determine what is wrong and develop a better treatment plan.Take care of YOUrself. emoticon Diana

I am not sure if I am heading towards depression or not, but I am crying right now. I have been with one issue after another, so I cannot deal with things at all. I am also to the point that I am not settling down at all. I have a 75 in the math and a 63 in telecomunications. I will not know about the other one until thursday.

Wow, that depression is nothing to play around with and I really believe also vitamin D is very helpful.

Suicide is so awful to deal with and try to live through. It affects everyone who knew that person.

We hear so many different ways of trying to deal with someone who is depressed and I do not think there is one pat answer because we are so unique and different and each person needs a different approach.

I am so sorry and feel so bad to hear stories like this.

When my husband went through it, the first thing the doctors did was put him on pills. I just mentioned it to him and he told the doctors at Shands and that is what they did but that is not what I wanted for him. After he left Shands I got him off of that med since it was not doing anything and that what he needed was to talk about what was happening to him. I know that those pills don't work since I have a neighbor that is taking at least three of those types of meds and they are not helping her or she would not need all of those.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I have talked to my dr. He wants to watch it, but doesn't think I need meds or a psychiatrist. I have also mentioned it to my counselor at school and she feels the same way.

Symptoms of Depression

Depression is now considered common, affecting about 340 million people worldwide. Although treatable, about half of all cases of depression go undiagnosed and unaddressed. Situational depression is a typical and normal reaction to events, such as a recent loss, and is simply part of the human experience. Rather than suppress situational depression, it is best to work through these periods with help from psychotherapists or counselors. A more serious medical diagnosis is clinical depression - it can also be triggered by a recent loss or other sad event, but then grows out of proportion to the situation and persists longer than is appropriate, affecting emotional health. Clinical depression often requires other forms of treatment in addition to counseling and therapy.
If you are experiencing any of the following, which are common symptoms of depression, make an appointment to talk with a therapist:
A sullen mood
Feelings of hopelessness, guilt and anxiety
Loss of interest in things that used to be pleasurable
Change in appetite
Change in sleeping patterns
Inability to concentrate
A lack of energy or feeling run-down
