    <p>Depression is a common affliction today. Along with the general sadness that accompanies depression, there is loss of enjoyment of t hose things that formally were pleasurable. Sufferers experience tiredness, a sense of worthlessness and hopelessness, and a loss of energy. Sleep is disturbed, and various physical symptoms__disgestive problems, headaches, backache, among others__often result.</p> <p>If not recognized and treated, depression even may lead to suicide. This is a problem in all age groups, but, in some societies, those 24 years and younger are especially vulnerable.</p> <p>There are two main kinds of depression. The first occurs in response to unpleasant circumstances of life, such as death, illness, job loss or a broken relationship. Everyone experiences some of these at one time or another. The other kind of depression is related to chemical imbalances in the central nervous system. This often is genetic and is as much as illness as any disease. We need to be accepting of people with these challenges and avoid judgment and stigmatization.</p> <p>Q: Everyone at some point struggles with depression. While that is generally unavoidable, you still can make choices that will help avoid potentially depressing situations. What kind of choices are you making and where will they likely lead?</p> <p>&nbsp;High Priest</p>

    Against the slumps, I always try to take a mix of activity and creative.  Close friends always help to move us, even when we are on -coñito- mood. 

    BTW, I´m a true beliver of the psycho-physical parallelism......

    Unpleasant circumstances of life, such as death, illness, job loss or a broken relationship have a reflect biochemical in the body.

    Chemical imbalances in the central nervous system have a reflect in the psyche by means of moods.
