In reply to please explain depression!!, posted by sandy on June 16, 1999, at 21:01:09

> I posted earlier about my brother who says he has been depressed since he was nine ( now 48). He is on all kinds of drugs right now and pretty much out of it. I wanted to hear from antone on what being depressed is all about. I really cannot relate but need to to help my brother. It is very easy for me to say , geez get on with it man we all have our problems, but if this is indeed a condition I would like to understand the feelings behind it and what it feels like. He has not expressed this to me and I think part of that may be because his unlieing problem is alcoholism. He has been in a hospital for that and remained sober for 6 years in which none of this depression stuff surfaced but since he has fallen on bad times he seems to fall back on depression and drug therapy. Please all your inputs to what it is like would be appreciated as I just want the best for my brohter anf want the right proble treated...i.e. alcoholism vs depression.

Sandy, forgive me. I forgot the most important thing. God. If you even remotely believe in God, a prayer a day can't hurt. Nothing to lose. I personally believe there is a Grand Purpose in all this, from which comes Goodness. Like a rose comes out of an ugly thorny branch. A rainbow from a storm. How did you find this site anyway? It seems clear to me that God has already played a Loving Hand, by bringing you here through whatever coincidences. He can and will provide strength and direction. In my belief, God's purpose is to have us all love each other and help each other as we would ourselves. And thus there are doctors and inventors of medicines and sites like this one, all ways of God working through us for each other. Having said that, and having said a prayer for you and your brother, print out that info on SSRI/Naltrexone and see the doc. Use the tools God has provided. I'm sure God is pleased, as you have alredy displayed incredible love and care for someone in need. A day will come when the gesture is returned to you when you need it the most. JohnL.
