    Dealing With Depression

    Everybody gets sad from time to time based on life circumstances. Whether it be due to a death of a loved one,  job loss, or a breakup the sadness and pain can be deep. Though these events can be significant, they are situational and taken by themselves can they be processed easier. By contrast, a depressive episode is all encompassing and goes beyond any situation. For many people it can last months and even years. Depression affects all aspects of life and many times includes more symptoms than sadness alone. Some symptoms of depression are:
