    As a young man I felt the avalanche of severe depression quite often;I don't anymore.
    I'm now in my late sixties so I cant say if I found the answer or just out grew depression...but I think the mind brings about depression as a way of getting the consciousness to recognize and deal with circumstances or beliefs that need to be resolved in the psyche;that's why our perception goes into slow motion when we get depressed.
    The fix (for me at least) has always been introspection.If you can overcome the fear (which most of us have) of introspection, the road to healing or wholeness becomes quite clear...Not 'easy',but clear none the less.I believe the key is to Simplify;always reduce your problems to their simplest expression...then you will feel the diminishing pain of healing rather than the destructive killing pain of depression;They Both end'One through healing,the other through self destruction...the choice remains ours.

    If one had experienced depression and knew how to get out of it, it would be easier to give advices.

    Don't think about it, don't worry doesn't help for the victims

    If it is a chronic depression and thus medical, seek medical counseling and treatment.
    If it is a depression related to frustration at your life or feeling like you're failing right now, take steps to change your life for the better. Creating a plan a la Dave Ramsey to get out of crushing debt and reining in spending. Creating a plan to change jobs to one you like or doesn't have a 2 hour commute. Planning on how to rebuild health family relationships or learn how to work with your partner better or leaving an abusive one.

    I live alone and go through this now and then, but mostly in the winter when its not easy to get out. I call it the winter blues. It helps to talk about it or write about it. Anything worse than that probably should have professional opinions as to the treatment needed.

    This question pops in my head cause i see lot's of youth engaging in suicide due to depression...yes we can say doctor's or professionals can help them...you might call me an idealist...but sometimes medication won't help...this case seems to deal with emotion and the feeling of being alone..as some suicidal notes had indicated...it's just disturbing that maybe some of our friends or relatives are suffering from it..that we are not aware of..maybe they just need someone to talk to even just 5 or 10 minutes..a word of encouragement.... smile sorry that was a random thought...

    Go out for walks in fresh air, try to eat healthy and don't be afraid to talk to people about it. It you find it hard to talk to friends or family then write your feelings in a diary, this worked wonders for me when I was going through a bad bout of depression in my late teens. The more you hold your feelings inside the worse they become so the best advice is to always tell someone how you feel, getting it off your chest is always the best way to start to bring yourself out of the depths of depression.
