Your answers please.
I am never sure whether to label it depression or extreme frustration. Perhaps it is depression brought on by my frustration. The frustration comes from my inabilities to function due to my strokes. Let's say, it is a good job that the people around here know I never touched alcohol, or they might thinik I was an alcoholic when I talk or walk. I got the wobbles.........:laugh:
Jim, you're so special. I just love your good nature and wonderful spirit!!!!! :1_grouphug:
I've never been full blow depressed, but have felt the overtones of anxiety when my hormones get out of whack. It's tough being a women in her 40s!
Not sure what a medical definition of depression is. I had bouts with what I think was depression before I got married. Growing in love for my wife and helping her grow spiritually and allowing her to help me grow spiritually has changed my outlook on life tremendously. The two of us have recently become much more active in our prayer life as well.
I haven't got the energy to be depressed. :laugh:
I am a life long "friend" of depression....I have survived multiple attempts to "end it all' and other destructive behaviour.
Thanks be to God, sending good councillors my way I am better able to manage the introversion of rage which is often the manner that depression takes.
Sadly, the depression which has been my burden is hand in hand with a ghastly history of abuse as a child which I will not elaborate upon.
The other folk I have met and who did not survive during my years of hospitalisation, I keep in mind each day and I try to do them proud as a survivor....so many young folk do make away with themselves, our society is so unforgiving of those seen as LOSERS.
Where I live now is very unaccepting of those with mental illness and as a nurse who often sees ODs...it is distressing the colleagues whose response is get a job/get a life.
