    Many people who suffer from depression have a belief that it cannot be overcome. You may have also been told that the best option is to control depression by taking antidepressant drugs.

    Exactly why therapy is so important!

    Sounds a lot like Ignatius of Loyola: spiritual desolation vs. situational desolation. The difference between the two have been helpful to me.

    Planning to quit my job again is making me depressed. I get messed up when I leave any group of people, especially if they’re sort of nice to me.

    It’s not too severe. I think I believe in stuff like having a sense of community, but maybe it’s better not to. The money’s not that great.

    Yes but… The psychological affects the physical affects the psychological affects the physical…

    It may also be that some feel hopeless in changing the kind of examples stated. While exercise may not directly affect the troubled relationships, it may help some get out of the hopeless that prevents seeing/creating a solution/coming to an acceptance of the situation.

    I’m not sure how often there is a “chemical depression” without these kin of stressors?

      I missed the bipolar, although moods are still often triggered by stressors.
