    This is a very interesting article,but I think if you had a place to print the article in its entirety it would benefit everyone that would like to read it over and over. Thank you. - 9/24/2012 2:59:50 PM
  • Thank you for this article and for the making the all-important distinction between just having the "blues" and "clinical depression". I suffer from S.A.D. (seasonal affective depression) and until last year, I never understood why I always get depressed during the winter time, then come back to life in the spring/summer/fall. This year, I plan to stock up on Vitamin D and schedule my vacation during the winter so I can go someplace sunny. Thanks for educating and informing. - 9/24/2012 2:45:39 PM
    Thank you Dean Anderson for this article. You have provided valuable information on a very common condition. Indeed it is important to seek appropriate treatment, not only for the one who is suffering depression, but for the entire family unit. - 9/24/2012 1:05:18 PM
    It is extremely difficult to read he text of your articles because of the advertisements that appear on top of the text. many times I am very much interested in reading the article but I give up because I cannot see the text.
    This is not helping your users at all and it is quite frustrating.

    The poor grammar and misspelled words in this one article have made me question the reliability of the entire sparks website. - 9/24/2012 9:53:53 AM

  • I have been depressed and it is caused by my weight and my irrational thoughts that go along with my weight. Having been diagnosed with BDD, it is a daily struggle to except my body the way it is. Everyone tells me I look great but I dont see it. CLothes dont fit the right way so that makes the depression even worse. - 9/24/2012 7:32:09 AM
    Please stop putting the ad over the text. It makes it difficult if not impossible to read! - 9/24/2012 5:14:52 AM
  • Great article on depression. If this is something you are dealing with, always remember that things CAN get better. Please talk to someone about how you're feeling! - 9/24/2012 5:03:16 AM
  • This article was very helpful to me. I have been experiencing depression for about 6 months now and knowing the some cycles can last up to 6 months gives me hope that I may be coming out of the tunnel. - 1/23/2012 11:29:53 AM
    How are you suppose to read this article with the ad running on top of the text? - 11/20/2011 12:19:01 PM

    Hello SCOTTEZ
    Please try your local Humane society. While you have to wait a while to be served the 'prices ' are phenominal. - 2/23/2011 10:25:41 AM
  • Sofla Mama: Huh. I never thought of it as hopelessness. I don't feel sad per se. Just trapped and anxious. I wouldn't have made that connection on my own. Thanks! - 2/1/2011 7:11:35 AM
  • Isn't (constant, irrational, or unexplanable) anger one of the signs of depression? - 1/31/2011 6:55:30 PM
  • My family says I seem a little down, but according to Spark, I'm depressed. Trust the Spark wisdom! - 1/31/2011 2:58:05 PM
