If the Powers that be, allow this it could maybe, save just one Life?

Stress and Depression are two similar things that go hand in hand together, but are totally different.

Let's look at each?

Stress is:-

tension: (psychology) a state of mental or emotional strain or suspense; "he suffered from fatigue and emotional tension"; "stress is a tension: (psychology) a state of mental or emotional strain or suspense; "he suffered from fatigue and emotional tension"; "stress is a vasoconstrictor" (vasoconstrictor) any agent that causes a narrowing of an opening of a blood vessel: cold or stress or nicotine or epinephrine or norepinephrine or angiotensin

difficulty that causes worry or emotional tension; "she endured the stresses and strains of life"; "he presided over the economy during the period of the greatest stress and danger"- R.J.Samuelson

try: test the limits of; "You are trying my patience!"

(physics) force that produces strain on a physical body; "the intensity of stress is expressed in units of force divided by units of area"


Whereas,

Depression is:-

a mental state characterized by a pessimistic sense of inadequacy and a despondent lack of activity

a long-term economic state characterized by unemployment and low prices and low levels of trade and investment

natural depression: a sunken or depressed geological formation
sad feelings of gloom and inadequacy

depressive disorder: a state of depression and anhedonia so severe as to require clinical intervention (anhedonia) an inability to experience pleasure.


(I admit that I have used many links to make this Presentation, but they are all available to those that insist)

Someone suffering from Stress, such as a World Leader, a CEO, a major Tennis Player or even someone in Business Management feels Stress, but not usually Depressed, it is part of the Job. But that also can cause Depression.

Someone Depressed doesn't really feel stressed, just feels cut off from the world around them, But that can cause Stress for them.

Two great examples of an Enigma.

Enigma is:-

mystery: something that baffles understanding and cannot be explained; "how it got out is a mystery"; "it remains one of nature's secrets"
riddle: a difficult problem


To talk about one without the other is wasting everyones' time, because they are interrelated. For example, someone Depressed will do silly thinks if they get Stressed out? Or someone under Stress can also do silly things if they become Depressed.

I actually lost a Son from the above example, he calmly shot himself. That is why I post this here to help others out, if I can.

Stress and Depression go Hand and Glove although recognised as completely different. When the two come together it can be Very Deadly to sufferers of either one and their Loved ones.

Stress



Directly related to Anxiety. Anxiety is a normal human emotion. Stress, good or bad, affects every person. When a person goes through a difficult task, they get stress. Anxiety occurs when people get FUD and hyperness.

Depression

A disease that must be treated. Excessive sadness and a lack of motivation are signs of depression. Although minor depression can be treated alone by trying to have fun and find better ways to make yourself happy -- Major depression is clinical, and if not dealt with ASAP, it can lead to chronic crazyness or even suicide.


Treatment Levels for Depression and Anxiety
  • Herbs
  • Prescription medication
  • Psychologist
  • Counselor

I am sorry for your loss too Abacus 7.

I guess most people may have a hard time separating stress from depression. I feel stresses in my life. I do not think I am depressed. Overall I am quite happy really. I wish some things were better but I am glad to be where I am in my life.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Pandy you are right in what you say and often just a little Support and encouragement from Family and Friends is all it takes to make it easier to cope.

A few years ago our Grand Son was also hit by a Car as was our youngest Son. Michael was in Intensive Care for weeks, but people from all over the World were praying for him and sending us Messages of Support. The little man survived, is leading almost a normal life now and is walking proof of the Power of Prayer. The Support helped my Family and I to really cope with it all.

I used to suffer from PTSD due to service.

I went through some extensive counseling and now am able to help some others who just need to talk to another.

The Pro's know and can help one with such depression.

My talking with the others also helps me keep it straight.

I suffered a bout of depression after my father died, but I managed to work through it with a bit of help from my friends. It was pretty hard for awhile.

I find it strange now that I find this topic quite difficult to think about, in comparison with others here in the Speak Easy. I don't know why.

Some times Pandy, just keeping it bottled up can make it ten times worse?

I think that is what happened to my Son?

He never reached out?

I went to Hell and back after my Dad died when I was 19, lasted for a few years, then, I just had to snap out of it. My Wife and Kids needed me. I became a Workaholic to support them. That actually became my private Crutch to lean on.

I see, by reading these posts, some members are mistaking periods of unhappiness, for depression.
There is a vast difference.

You got that one in one, Mate!

That is the real Danger!

People often go onto Medication that they should just leave well alone. They only think that they are depressed and their Doctor prescribes some thing that could very well make them much worse.

If people are not actually Depressed the Drugs can have quite dangerious side affects.

That is some thing that came up in my Son's case, he was full of Drugs and Grog, but he had lost his youngest Brother and like me, sorta blamed himself for not being there when needed?

If I learnt any thing out of it all, it was just to always have a friendly ear to people. I can honestly say since then I have managed to talk a few people out of doing the same as my Son did, just by being there as a good listener and giving nice sound Advice in a friendly way.

I think a certain amount of stress, is healthy,but too much leads to Strokes, and Heart Attacks.
