You're both right, the problem with talking about this is }debating/disargeeing" everysingle arguement has another thing to trump it and just like that so does this one it is a double egded sword.

Depression sucks period.I know because it is a problem that has gone through the family for as many generations as I know of and I am a unfortunate victim of this gene. What I want to know is what causes the depression when everything in your life is going amazingly well.
All I can figure is that your mind or self perhaps soul is refusing to let go of something that has happened or hasn't and which would cause it. I am one of those people who refuse to believe in it just happened. Everything happens for a reason.

lol, maybe you're right. and maybe i'm just more prone to buying stuff medicallly considering that it fascinates me tons and i want to be a doctor. but they have medications that do help, and mental things often become medical. they prescribe you drugs for many, many mental conditions which in turn, makes them medical. so yes, depression is in your head, although it affects you physically but there are biological factors in it. anyways.. i do believe that saved people can also be depressed. and, i just don't understand why anyone would choose to be "depressed" it makes no sense to me. And unsaved people, some of them i know are wayy happier than half of the saved people i know. but that's happiness. not joy. joy comes only from God. I really do believe its something you don't have a choice in whether or not you get it. Sure, there's things you can do to prevent it, but i do believe you have a choice in how you deal with it. I think you can let it rule your life, or you can overcome it, and be stronger for it.

i disagree with that. depression can be a choice. you are talking about people who aren't saved, and in that case i barely understand how any of them cannot suffer from what you call depressions and more. i think they make mental conditions medical conditions that really aren't.

PostSubject: Re: Depression   Sat May 31, 2008 3:15 pm

okay, i just wanted to make this a bit clear....depression is different from being sad. we all have our ups and downs, and sometimes the downs last a bit, and they don't seem to have a reason. depression is different. its not just a low. It's an acutal disease. it's defined as a condition of general emotional dejection and withdrawal; sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason. "Sadness greater and more prolonged than warranted by any objective reason" meaning that it lasts a certain amount of time, and it has no clear reason for it. there are 9 major syptoms of depression. They are:

  • sadness or hopelessness
    lost of intrest or pleasure from most daily activities
    change in appetite
    change in sleep patters
    restlessness
    fatigue
    feeling unworthy or guilty for no reason
    having problems concentrating, remembering or making decisions
    thoughts of death or suicide


When you have at least 5 of these symptoms for at least two weeks with no stimulant (i.e. death of a loved one, friend moving away, breaking up with significant other, loss of job) it is considered major depression. Depression isn't a choice, and its not like the people suffering from it can choose simply not to have it anymore than you can choose not to have a cold. It's not clear what causes it, but a few factors are your genetic make-up, the environment you live in, hormones and the chemical imbalances in your brain. In people suffering from depression, the amounts of three neurotransmitters are low; serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This is why they're then prescribed medicince if the doctor sees it fit, to fix these imbalances. Depresssion can go away on it's own, and it's something that you can overcome with a lot of hard work and help from the LOrd, but the thing is most depressed people don't feel up to the challenge of making it go away, which is why doctors are needed for it.

It didn't seem all too clear what everyone thought depression was, its a bigger thing than just being down for a day. It's not a choice and it comes from all different things. Sometimes, it may seem completely pointless, but its possible to overcome, and you just have to learn something from it.

thats what i ment, the bad attitude makes u depressed, but u don't have to do anything to have a bad attitude.
most ppl, probably, but some, no.

and you can feel unloved even when ppl are pouring out love to you.

Haha you didn't read my or your post lol. You said you can have a poor attitude and then randomly become depressed. The Doom & Gloom attitude invited the Depression in causing it. Just getting it out of the Blue even when you feel all the love you can take is what I want to know what causes it as of is it something your not willing to let go of even if you have already forgotten about and is placed behind your regular thoughts.
Not feelling loved caused the person to be depressed
Dept caused the adult to be depressed
Death caused the family to be depressed
Poor self-esteem caused the person to be depressed
The list goes on and something always has caused it.
