I have depression and have since 1998. Feeling isolated alone not mingle with ppl it can become very debilitating at times, I have found even though I'm on anti-depressant I need to be very careful around stressful times as it can lead me back into that depressive state.
I agree with you bex78, I have had depression all my life after many many years of abuse and loosing of both my sons, I was given antidepressants by local GP who had no idea and it was many many years later that a psychiatrist finally got it right so instead of constantly wanting to end it all he put me on a low dose of Tofranil and I have been good for 15yrs. It's ok for people to disaprove but if it works Praise God and live a full life. I don't want to go back to all that horrible time. God Bless

I have been on medication for 34yr without it I'm the worst to be around. Even with I still have bad days. Feel for everyone who suffers it.!
I think the term is overused and misunderstood. I take an antidepressant but I've never been depressed. My doctor says he get a lot of complaints from people in my situation. A new term for whatever condition you may have that requires an antidepressant when you are not depressed. There are many such conditions. It almost becomes a stigma as people just assume you are depressed. The antidepressant I take is mild and helps me to get a good nights sleep.
Who wouldnt be depressed in Australia today?
We are the luckiest people in the world living in this country. Try living in Iraq, Columbia, Mexico, Afghanistan, India or anywhere on the African continent. If you think the grass is greener, try it overseas - then come back and kiss Australian soil. I've travelled enough to know that the grass is definitely NOT greener overseas.
I can assure nicestman hes way of beam. I found it so difficult to mix with anyone, even my family. It most certainly isnt anything about a "me me me" syndrome at all. Go and learn something about depression mate before making bald statements that are not based on anything but your own deluded and misinformed ideas.

People who get depressed are selfish people,(What about me) syndrome.
I find this a strange remark, since in my experience if you go to depression treatment group therapy you meet some of the nicest, most intelligent people with bags of empathy for others.
Hey go and get informed before you make stupid comments like that. When you have depression somedays its just to hard, but we try to push on, often feeling like your pushing a square rock you a steep mountain without help.
What a silly comment. I for one do not think "what about me". Rather, I constantly challenge myself to do better and get out there. Sometimes though there are days when you just cannot move. Someone could pick you up and you would fall back to the ground being unable to support yourself. Thoughts of suicide appear like urges no different to wanting to have your favourite food. Oh I have an urge for pizza so you go and get it. Oh I have an urge for suicide and it is a struggle to resist. Yes I have been told to pull my socks up and get on with. I often wish voluntary euthanasia was available for absolutely anyone who wanted it because I often feel like being put down like an ill pet. On these days there is no beauty in the world. Just ugliness, greed and selfishness. You would think that given our wonderful brain we could do better for each other. But still there are those who take delight in ridiculing other people.
This is true - sometimes in life the hardest thing one can do is to keep struggling onwards with no joy and no hope for a better future. Death by comparison would be a much simpler and less painful option. It is only through depressed people being able to realise that it is an illness and then seek help that they can hope to one day change things and see a point to life.
It is uninformed and narrow minded comments like this that keep the stigma of depression around. Depression is not about getting attention and for many, they don’t admit their depression as they feel it will cause people they care about an inconvenience or for them to think less of them.
What a caring and well informed person! Go read something about the subject. You are certainly not "nicestman"
