Do you ever get depressed?
How did you overcome such situations?
I'm extremely depressed at this very time in my life. So yes!
I think we all get depressed at times. When I start feeling depressed, I always try to remember all the good things in life and how much I have to be thankful for! It certainly out weighs the bad!!
Every body gets depressed. However, in the strict technical sense, we have mixed the terminologies of 'clinical depression' and a 'minor slump' in the mood. These two are two completely different things.
Minor slumps and bad mood are common. Depression/clinical depression is a disease, which should be treated. Read my hub 'What is depression' for further information about this.
I used to got very depressed. As a teenager, as an adolescent. When I was overwhelmed by my first maniacal episode, I thought this was the perfect answer to my prayers.
I felt ecstacy running through my veins without having taken any drugs at all. So much energy and creativity. I thought I was saved untill my brains needed to go back to depression. A moment of silence and non existence. Years I should say.
Bipolar Disorder I had. Diagnosed with it in 1996. Thank God were at 2012! I'm doing very well and I'm very happy. Anyone in the middle of a depression...I hope you'll get out of it as soon as possible though I know a depression takes time. Too much time.

How do atheists fight depression?This is a legitimate question. I'm an atheist and I find that when I start to think about death and the sheer vastness of the universe, I get overwhelmed. The birth and death of the earth (and the human race) is so quick and insignificant in the grand scheme of...

But i have to show that I am all fine and happy in front of my son and hubby. Its frustrating. Have you ever felt like this and then what one needs to do? It is hard to smile when actually i don even feel like reacting.

Do you think that all of the people with "depression" are truly ill? Or are some of them "faking"?Do you think that depressed people need the help of a physician and/or medication? Or do they simply need to change the circumstances that may be causing, or at least contributing...

Does anyone think there is anyway to solve depression, without medication??I am definitely in a slump, and really need to get out of it. But I need help. Anti-depressants are always there, just wanted to explore a little before I made that decision.
