I Am Fighting Depression

I think that anyone who says that they've never been depressed has something seriously wrong with them.  Those of us with 'issues' are the ones that are doing okay.  The only people I expect to have a happy face are young children, because young ones deserve to know no hurt.

I suffered from depression close to the point of suicide for about 30 years. I finally prayed and asked God to help me. He sent me an angel. Now I have been depression-free for 14 years. Ain't God wonderful?

wirenuts, you're right on. As soon as we get closer to feeling happy ourselves, we're not stuck in the other side so much, and then we realize that you don't have to feel guilty to feel happy - it is within but we have to find it. It's funny how when you're on the other side though, that you really struggle, there is no easy answer.

theres nothing wrong with people who say they've never been depressed. their just lying.

SUFFER DEPRESSION

Everyone has their own emotions.Some of us battle daily, others never have a problem.

I agree but what we do during our lives reflect them and they are the ones picking up the tab. I believe it won't be long till it reaches them. 13 year olds are getting the hit because the grow up redoing our mistakes and get hurt by it earlier then what we did. Times are getting worse. We watched show with a life meaning in them, now it is getting harder to find movies without killing and ****. Things need to change or a great depression is going to hit and hard. And as you are depressed you don't want to do anything and when the adults are depressed as well, they don't want to help. People will get lazier more violent, overweight and sadder. Not enough people wanting to help already. It is going to be our children who are going to suffer from this. And we brought it upon them. I plan to do what ever I can!!!!
