A symptom of a sick and hyper-materialistic society. The reason for this is that not everyone buys into the materialism as they grow up, thus they feel commonly disjointed from the rest, particularly after a horrible event that shakes up their perception of reality to another perception that is actually more accurate. However, at that time, the person will most likely not have the emotional/intellectual maturity to understand this 'new' reality, thus they are overwhelmed by emotions. While people plunge downward, in our society, most others refuse to help/react stupidly and end up making things much worse. During such a time of ghastly realization, one needs to be close to others who are going through similar ordeals, but such free thinking is often discouraged and the affair is too stigmatized for most to help with it.

Depression is not a 'medical disorder'; this has merely been invented to absolve others of responsibility and facilitate an easier, more smooth return to the status quo. Most people have trouble understanding people who are depressed, thus it is easier for them to say that they have some kind of 'condition' rather than making an attempt to genuinely understand them. The same goes for a psychiatrist; they are merely there to return the sufferer back to the status quo, whilst depression is often the beginning of a path to intellectual cynicism that transcends any 'normality'. Much of the reason that depression is far more common in current times than a hundred years ago is because many people run to technological outlets to avoid their problems, hence they are distracted, miserable and at the same time very confused.

Depressed people are commonly more disgusted by the 'norms' and anything sensationalist, but often are not given a sanctuary in which to learn/heal and often instead have nonsense shoved in their faces. Depression is beatable but requires a strong willpower, a great deal of thought, and a change of attitude. Many who have had severe depression at a point in their life can be great empathizers.

The theories that depression is caused by a 'chemical imbalance' are nothing short of nonsense; the brain does chemically adapt to changing circumstances, but since it is influenced by the metaphysical in this manner, it must be treated the same way. By psychiatric logic, being happy for an extended period of time is also a chemical imbalance.

Symptons of depression:

1~sadness, tearfulness, crying, frequently showing pervasive sadness by wearing black clothes, writing poetry with morbid themes, or having a preoccupation with music that has nihilistic themes. Also, crying for no apparent reason.

2~hopelessness feeling that life is not worth living or worth the effort to even maintain their appearance or hygiene. They may believe that a negative situation will never change and be pessimistic about their future.

3~less interest in activities; or not enjoying previously favorite activities dropping out of clubs, sports, and other activities. Not much seems fun anymore.

4~persistent boredom; low energy Lack of motivation and lowered energy level is reflected by missed classes or not going to school. A drop in grade averages can be equated with loss of concentration and slowed thinking.

5~social isolation, poor communication lacking connection with friends and family. avoiding family gatherings and events. Teens who used to spend a lot of time with friends may now spend most of their time alone and without interests. not sharing feelings with others, believing that you are alone in the world and no one is listening to you or even cares about you.

6~low self esteem and guilt assuming blame for negative events or circumstances. you may feel like a failure and have negative views about their competence and self-worth. you feel as if you are not "good enough."

7~extreme sensitivity to rejection or failure believing that you are unworthy, becoming even more depressed with every supposed rejection or lack of success.

8~increased irritability, anger, or hostility often irritable, taking out most of the anger on your family. you may attack others by being critical, sarcastic, or abusive. you may feel u must reject ur family before their family rejects them.

9~difficulty with relationships you may suddenly have no interest in maintaining friendships. you'll stop calling and visiting their friends. u also may have lost a loved one or had a bad relationship with ur bf/gf

10~frequent complaints of physical illnesses, such as headaches and stomachaches complaining about lightheadedness or dizziness, being nauseous, and back pain. Other common complaints include headaches, stomachaches, vomiting, and menstrual problems.

11~frequent absences from school or bad performance in school causing trouble at home or at school. Because u may not always seem sad, parents and teachers may not realize that the behavior problem is a sign of depression.

12~poor concentration having trouble concentrating on schoolwork, following a conversation, or even watching television.

13~a major change in eating and/or sleeping patterns Sleep disturbance may show up as all-night television watching, having a hard time getting up for school, or sleeping during the day. Loss of appetite may become anorexia or bulimia. Eating too much may result in weight gain and obesity.

14~talk of or efforts to run away from home Running away is usually a cry for help. This may be the first time the parents realize that their child has a problem and needs help.

15~thoughts or expressions of suicide or self-destructive behavior saying u want to be dead or talk about suicide.

16~alcohol and Drug Abuse using alcohal or other drugs as a way to feel better.

17~self-injury having difficulty talking about their feelings may show their emotional tension, physical discomfort, pain and low self-esteem with self-injurious behaviors, such as cutting.

A state of altered perception where one sees the world as bleak and dark. Feelings and actions such as purposelessness, disinterest, low self esteem, self-harm, pessimism, suicidal thoughts or tendencies and a lack of motivation or energy may accompany it. It is not simply the feeling of being sad, but is a lasting state of mind that could be caused by a number of factors. Many health problems lead to depression, poor sleeping habits or eating habits, stress, drugs. Somebody who lives a life of abuse or poverty would be a victim of depression. Clinical depression is a very serious problem, and those who have it should seek help. Often it is difficult to recognise due to the numbness it can bring, and usually people are not willing to admit when they are depressed. Depression is difficult to imagine when one is not depressed, and can therefore fall under the critical eye as something that does not exist and something people only whine about because they have nothing better to do. Nobody can know for certain what another person is feeling, so it is not something anybody can judge.
Your next door neighbour seems happy and normal. You find out he has killed himself. Nobody had suspected his depression, but he has been feeling alienated and could find no sense of living, the pain and torment he was secretly feeling were too much to take.
