What is Depression?

Dealing With The Feeling of Depression

Depression is not something that you have made up in your head. It’s feeling “down” and “low” and “hopeless” for months at a time.

Depression can affect people at any age, of any race, any ethnic, or any economic group. It doesn’t just happen to soft people and is truly an equal opportunity illness. It is not a form of weakness but is a serious health problem, like any other illness.

It is not something which should be hidden or anything to be embarrassed about. Depression is a thief. It comes into your life, steals your energy and self-esteem, and whispers to you that you are worthless. It shoves you down deeper into the bottom of the pit where no angels want to go. It can even drive you to consider suicide.
