Symptoms of Depression

Some symptoms of depression aren't talked about as much as their more common counterparts. You know the cousins I'm referring to:

  • Fatigue
  • Excessive Eating/Drinking
  • Sexual Promiscuity
  • Fear
  • Worry
  • Anxiety
  • ... and a host of other symptoms that are known to so many millions Americans. However, we must remember that the symptoms of depression can also be masked as something totally different than what we're used to hearing and seeing.

    For example, extreme sports such as boxing, football, and hockey are outlets for anger, frustration, and sadness. Violence is a prime example of fear gone mad. Hurt people hurt others, along with hurting themselves.

    Some young people are so depressed and saddened by life as they know it, that they choose the military as a fix for their strain. And you might be especially suprised to know that comedy is the secret remedy to abating persistent despair.

    And we must not forget that some people just go crazy because there is no other way to deal with the hardknocks of life. Yep, that's right, craziness falls under the heading of depression.

    Some people, hopefully those reading this site, will claim that they are dying of a broken heart, and unless they get the help they need and deserve, will die lives unfulfilled because they never did understand that pain and tragedy is apart of living.

    Crap happens to almost everyone and there is no God in the sky pointing down at you and saying, "Go get him!" It's understandable to have a 'me' focus when the sh*t hits the fan but in the big picture scheme of things it's not personal.

    Jobs are lost, hearts are broken, people are abandoned, children die way before their parents, and the list goes on and on ... Maybe we're all having some symptoms of depression in everything we do and even in the conversations we have with one another.

    The goal is to accept that misfortune happens, which puts you, the person, in control of the response to those external events, instead of just being a helpless and depressed victim.
