Depression, Prizes & Buy Nothing!

-- Quote of the Day --

“…It (Chronic Depression) can be very difficult to recognize if you don’t know what to look for. Depression is basically a long period of feeling hopeless with extreme sadness and despair. Chronic Depression also comes in many forms - as insomnia; people with chronic depression are preoccupied with thoughts or feelings of guilt or regret and many times self-hatred. In my case I had very poor self-confidence and poor concentration and memory as well as the anxiety that started out in me grew into a depressed state. …As far as children, I find it interesting that… depressed children often display an irritable rather than a depressed mood. And this is often not noticed until many years later. …For me my anxiety level rose so high it inhibited my ability to concentrate and this was what then sent me into clinical depression.
