DO you suffer from depression?

Emotions and behaviors accompany the words we use to describe ourselves and to communicate with others.  Therapists believe that many forms of depression have their roots in the words we speak to ourselves and the names we give to our experiences.  Chronically depressed people repeatedly use negative words to describe themselves and the events around them.

Some people are overwhelmed by day-to-day details and frustration and anxiety of it can turn into a sense of being trapped in life.  From there they can slide into a long-lasting depression.  As the emotional pain builds, these people blame their conflicts on others around them destroying relationships.  Are you overwhelmed today?

with in a year my dad went blind, my best friend died, and after he lost his vision my wonderful caring daddy became very angry at the world and often lashed out ( verbally mostly) at my mom and I. so yeah I just wanted to find a hole to crawl in and die for about a year and a 1/2

I would say that most of all I am tired.  I am tired of always being the responsible one, tired of if i dont do something that it doesnt get done, tired of hubby acting like he is soooooooo overwhelmed when he barely does anything especially when it comes to the household, tired of people acting like I have no need to defend myself when in fact you are the reason that i feel the need to, tired of being pulled in so many directions, just tired.  Yeah just one day of the week, I would like to have NOTHING to do!!
