> That sounds like the same feelings I get when I'm depressed. The mood goes from black clouds at the slightest criticism, to blackness all the time.
> As for what to do to treat it, first take a depression inventory, there are some online. Then, if you are suffering from depression, hie thee to a doctor. Talk about whether counseling or drugs would help, probably some combination of both.
> Remember, the counseling is not because you've done something bad, or because there's something wrong with you, or any of those negative things. A therapist will work with you to help you learn how to protect yourself a little better from the stressors which bring on depression. It's just like if you broke your leg, you'd go to a physical therapist to learn to walk well again. Well, your mood regulators are broken, you may take meds to act as a splint while they heal, but then you have to learn to walk on them again. Therapy is a good thing, it's s sign that you are good enough, smart enough, strong enough to see that someone else can help you be even stronger. It's a sign that you're not going to sit back and let life roll over you, you're gonna stand up and LIVE your life.

Was the above written by the same Racer who posted so much despair last week? If so, my prayers have been answered. My question is this: What do you think made the difference from one week to the next (almost overnight.)??
