Someone touched on this...the world is hard to deal with. Having depression or anxiety on top of that makes it worse.

I agree with the point that you cannot reason with someone that has a problem. You can't.

I had a major panic attack while away on a trip. I was away from my family. What triggered it? It rained the entire time I was there. A whole week. It put me in this dark confined spot. I was a mess. I felt dizzy and sick. I forgot to eat and about 5 hours without food I felt I was going to pass out.

After that trip I was determined to find something to help me. I couldn't get back right. My doctor got me on meds. It's been a real help not only with the anxieties but being able to deal with my spouse. She too has alot of issues and it's always put a strain on my heart.

I wish all that feel bored, lonely or just lack the energy to do things to get checked out. There are alot of things you can do to help yourself. Don't feel there isn't anything wrong with you.

Obviously, you wouldn't drag a broken leg around making excuses there isn't anything wrong.
If one has a chemical imbalance that causes their depression then medication will help. But for people for whom depression is environmental, no amount of meds will help.

I'm glad your depression can be controlled by meds.

funymann, I have found that it helps to leave the house when my phone isn't ringing.

Suicides typically make the news when it is someone famous. There's no telling how much more of this happens every day. Sad story, indeed. Such a grisly way to go, as someone else already stated. And what a visual to leave behind for their loved ones. I have to wonder what kind of torment would make someone choose this route.

A method to the madness? Something to celebrate in depression?

People that have depression need to be with people.

Sometimes I get depressed that no one calls. It's like no one cares.
There are so many reasons for this, no offense. No two situations are ever really the same. I can tell you the last thing I wanted was company. The phone rang and I didn't answer. I didn't want to talk to anyone.
