Depression

Depression in psychology and psychiatry refers to long term and persistent feeling of sadness, guilt, hopelessness and thoughts of death. A depressed person cannot just 'snap out of it' - he needs support from his family and friends, and sometimes counseling and medication can help too.

This online support group for depression will help you realize you are not alone - join up, help others going through the same road as you are, find help for yourself, and meet professionals who know about the condition too.

"It is a time when one's spirit is subdued and sad, one knows now why; when the past seems a storm-swept desolation, life a vanity and a burden, and the future but a way to death."

-Mark Twain

Well depression is an illness when 'the blues' seem to affect your daily life. You may also get symptoms like emotional disturbances, tearfulness, hoplessness guilt and lack of interest in things that you used to previously like with unexplained aches and pains, suicidal thoughts, thoughts of self harm, sleep, eating and weight disorders. One should go and see your doctor when one feels like the blues have lasted for longer than a couple of weeks.
