    depression can happen when you have a stroke. It is very hard to be cheerful

    Now that I'm cured of my schizophrenia, where am I when I need me?

    BUT, on a serious note. Put on the happy pills 18 months ago. Don't feel I can come off them.

    I suffer from depression, it's made worse by people who don't understand what you go through or find it something to laugh at, because I suffer & sometimes terribly, I'm there for anyone else who suffers

    I knew someone who was touched by this dreadful illness. Much worse than being physically unwell. It affects a lot of people, not just the sufferer.

    Very good post, anyone who's ill deserves some pity and care instead of being put down because of it.

    Pity is the wrong word. It's not a matter to joke about.
    The cemetaries are full of folk who had depression.

    Very true Billy..And it's often very hard to spot the symptoms of sufferers even when you think you know them well..

    My wife suffers from it, I have lived with it for 10 years, and i still dont understand it and probably never will.

    I am a always look on the bright side of life kind of guy, there is always someone worse off than me, so whats the point of worrying about **** you cant control.

    My wife worries about everything and everyone, dwells on everything she thinks about, and gets even more depressed.

    I do think the doctors could do more though, she was put on these tablets 7 years ago, started at 20mg a day, now she is on 100mg a day, its like "not getting better then, ah well up them some more and see what that does".

    I lost a very good friend to depression 8 years ago. Took his life and left 2 young girls and his wife behind.

    Still effects me today at times. I changed my opinion about the whole thing overnight.

    Help not abuse is the order of the day.

    An awful subject, but something that reaches and touches us all, never had it myself, been blessed that way, but have lost friends to that disgusting desase. Great folks they were too,
    some things you cant get out of your head, and this is one of them, the lost friends. Always with you, never go away, You never stop asking yourself. " COULD I HAVE DONE MORE "
