Drummer - You are right on the button. I suffer from clinical depression which is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. One of those things I suffered from for years before I realized it and got help. I will be on antidepressants for the rest of my life and these little pills saved my life! If a person is not truly depressed anti depressants will not do anything for them. They are not *happy* pills and are non addictive.

Situational depression happens to everyone at some points during their lives. People who suffer from a chronic illness will surely suffer from bouts of depression and rightly so. Some people have seasonal depression usually referred to as the winter or summer bla's. Either case *can* be very serious if not addressed.

This concludes the depresson education for this morning! LOL.
