Great article... I hope it reaches a lot of people, especially those who think depression is some sort of motivational issue and believe the individual can just pull himself or herself out of it by sheer force of will. That attitude, and the stigma and shame of depression, is what keeps so many people suffering in silence. Report
Great tips! Thanks! Report
Excellent info...Thx! Report
Yeah. My DH is depressed. He's had an injury & has lost the ability to do his job. He's dealing w/ pain constantly, and hardly sleeps (which has been an issue for YEARS). I can't help him. He is miserable. -- Insurance/medical coverage offers no "fix" of the problem...only as many drugs as he wants. Don't know where to turn??? Report
WOW! This one is an "eye opener". Thanks for the info! Report
I enjoyed this article. Thank you. When my brother died, my Dad went into a depression; he had mostly "women" characteristics. My husband struggles with depression but again mostly "women" type traits. Thankfully, my husband is open to talking about what bothers him. Report

This article really strikes home for me. After my husbands’ stroke, he raged on me something awful. I was blamed for everything for quite a few years. He was extremely depressed.This led to me being depressed for quite a while. You might say it was a “Catch 22”. Things have really improved for us since that time. It was a great reminder of how far we have come. Report

Appreciate the information Report
A traumatic event I witnessed last year and loosing my love for teaching high school, just led to deeper depression. The signs were all there, the anger, the lack of motivation to do what I always liked doing. I finally sought out a therapist, I couldn't talk with anyone, don't know why. It has been almost a year. I refused the meds, but I found the time with the therapist was giving myself to see myself and some of what I could and what I couldn't do. When my therapist made the statement that she didn't know how I could deal with the amount of stress I was under. I realized that I needed to do what I could and learn not to stress over the things I had no control over. Seems obvious, but it wasn't to me. I feel much better but I still need to deal with life.
