In light of recent events, we would like to lend a comforting hand for anyone suffering from depression. It is important to know who can actually suffer from this health condition. You don’t need to be a celebrity to suffer from depression, though many celebrities have. You don’t need to be rich, or poor, a teenage or pregnant, you don’t need to be sick or healthy, you don’t need to be skinny or fat, you don’t even need to be lonely or popular…depression can hurt anyone, at any time and in many ways. It is also true that not just humans, but dogs and other animals can also suffer from depression.
There is a long list of celebrities that have suffered from depression and even more of everyday, ordinary people living their lives and experiencing the major effects that can take hold. Each and every one of us has felt the blues but when the blues start to extend throughout your days, turning into weeks and nothing seems to lift your spirit, it might be the start of something bad.
Sometimes people (not usually animals) can hide their feelings, go along like nothing is effecting them, keep their friends clueless and family naïve by masking their feelings, thoughts or hiding unapproved actions. This only leads to feeling more alone, even in a crowded room, full of people you know or friendly strangers you can still be utterly by yourself but no one knows. Humans can’t read minds but just a little request for help may spark dramatic changes and possible prevent a permanent end.
Depression Is Serious
Depression is a serious medical illness that has not occurred by something made-up. It is real, as are the consequence of some actions taken because of it. Depression can lead to addiction, whether the addiction be drugs, alcohol, cutting, sex, or any other unhealthy vice – they only bring a temporary distraction. Depression can also lead to death, whether it’s pushing risky boundaries, overdoes or suicide, the result is permanent.
Many believe in prescription medications to help relieve the tortures of depression.
