Living with a Major Depression

Updated on August 13, 2014

On Tuesday ''Robin Williams'' sixty-three years took his life after struggling for years trying to fight a depression that ended with him taking his life.

Like Robin Williams, I am struggling with a Major depression because of the murder of my son. There are time I feel sad, lonely and overwhelm at the world, not wanting to share my pain with anyone.

This illness has disable me from living a normal happy life because irritable thoughts that travel thoughts out my mind. Each and everyday Of my life I feel myself dealing with demeans,that will one day take over my mind without justification.

What is a depression? To me a depression is a lot of conflicting thoughts and feeling that travel threw ones minds, challenging them to the unknown.These thoughts are so deep they interfere with our over day lives, causing us live in a world of uncertainty.

Depression is a serious illness that effects one's behavior pattern, which could lead to acts of violence or a deep tragedy.

There are no age limits to depression, anyone one can be subjected to this illness. Some people go threw a stage of depression a few times, why others go through life fighting and trying to win.Most people take drugs and Alcohol to escape from themselves and others hopping things will be easier.

Is Programs and intensive Therapy the answer to This Illness" Depression"..

      Thank you so much for your comment. I have found some peace in writing my thoughts down on paper. My depression is so strong some time i wake up crying and shaking with uncontrollable fear. My pain is as great to day as it was the day he died... Robin Williams took his life no one really knows what put him over.. Jada67

      I am very sorry to hear of the murder of your son, Jada. The death of one's child must be the most unbearable experience anyone can go through. I dated a woman who could not sleep more than a half hour before she awoke from nightmares of her son committing suicide in front of her. It is truly horrible. Please stay strong and do your best to live with this. It has been revealed that Robin Williams was also suffering from early stages of Parkinson's disease. I feel that this and being a sufferer of extreme depression put him over the edge. Please try to carry on no matter how difficult. Your life and your writings here are vital. Teach others. Explain to others. Your experiences and viewpoints are crucial and important. I wish you the best and hope to hear much more from you. My best to you.
