What Causes Depression?

What Causes Depression?

I don't consider feeling sad about something bad that happened depression. That is a normal response to something. To me depression is feeling bad when I don't really have a reason to. Or feeling too bad about something that happened. Too bad for too long.

What causes that? Why do I react differently than other people?

When Did U Realize U Had Depression?

When Did U Realize U Had Depression?

A traumatic event led me to a doctor who diagnosed me with depression. According to him, I had actually been depressed a long time,,which I didn't realize until this event. I had that 1 horrible bout with depression, where I knew something was wrong with me,,,but didn't feel like I had any problems with it before that.
Now that I'm older, I can feel the depression weigh me down, but bigger problems with it comes and goes. I'm really not even sure if I would call it depression… read more

Why Do People Not Take Me Seriously When I Say I Have Depression?

Why Do People Not Take Me Seriously When I Say I Have Depression?

I am 19 which is quite young I understand, but whenever I try to talk to someone about being depressed or how I have a mental illness a lot of people just say I am being over dramatic when I have been diagnosed by a psychiatrist and have been admitted before. Why don't people believe me? Is it just cause of my age?
