Facebook debate over stress and depression, my way!

Malcolm Ian Geoffrey Lawrence "Studies show that 80% of the population suffers from depression, and the other 20 percent of you cause it." -- Dana Eagle

Timothy Gunter
The other 20% are those who are the most depressed causing trouble for the 80% of us. "If mama ain't happy, nobody's happy."

Pop Emil
I am not the kind to get ulcers from stres or depression, but the kind that gives it to the others... LOL

Wierdly I am not depressed! In What Category puts me this?

Gabrielle Di Sant'angelo
Try to stay away from those who cause the stress. Meet new people, try new interests, visit new countries e.g. Have you been to Romania? People are genuine and wonderful!


Kristen Fife
Depression can be debilitating. One of my closest friends suffers severe depression and it's hard to stand by and just watch many days. (Damn, Kristen is right, I wish she wouldn't be)

Colin Wheeler
Pop, that puts you in the happy group, outside of the population in general. :-)
Depression is a terrible thing but we must remember it is a detachment from emotions, suppression of our feelings. We need to work harder to get in touch with ourselves.

@Colin
In my view, depresssion is just a biochemical change in body which is triggered by inability to respond to the cause. Nothing but dance of molecules triggering the most easiest solution which is avoiding the path to any action. Then, once anyone goes in that loop, in-action itself becomes the cause of the dance.

Colin Wheeler
Hi Satyen, I think it is very dangerous to think of depression as only a physical/biological thing. It has many different causes of which some are biological and some are mental and/or emotional. Treating people with mental or emotional depression with drugs often has little long term benefit as it is not looking at the long term problem. 60% of people who commit suicide have depression and it is vital that we focus on the fixes and not blame a single cause route.

Gabrielle Di Sant'angelo
I know the cure for it. You need to travel, get out of there, go to Romania deep into the Carpathian Alps see the Bran Castle, Dracula's legend, in summer time , meet the people, sing with them and dance the HORA you will love it! Refresh yourself and you will feel brand new. This is my recipe. Good luck www.discoverromnia.com

Colin Wheeler
All of Eastern Europe all the way from Estonia to Montenegro is pretty damn wonderful and I fully agree, a great cure for depression!

Pop Emil
wierdly many Romanians are depressed too, maybe becouse they live in the large cityes, on a salary,

And work in the politics or administration.

Simplify your life, get rid of the credit cards, stop buying things you don't need, keep your car for 20 years, not for 2, change your cell phone every 5 to 10 years, not every year, and so on, and your life will be less stressed....

Satyen Kumar
Kool recipe to go back in few thousand years age ;) Seriously,Pop, I liked your view to do things by simplicity. and probably is the key to be happy ( as it does not burden the mind to be manupulative).
However, I think simplicity should be practiced on a balanced level ( or what will happen to credit card companies, and the economies?? they will start to be depressed ;)

Pop Emil


Satyen, I live a balanced simplicity, have 2 TV that stay off for months, 4 computers 3 on linux one on windows, that I enjoy using all day, Is not that I got back in the Jurassic era, it is only that I refuse to take part in the madness today, that's all!


Satyen Kumar
Madness today, is the evolution of the science for last thousand years. Having these means a necessaity to keep ourselves up. It does not mean that these are cause of the depression or negative feelings anyway.

Materialistically, I do enojy these abundantly.

Why dont you just associate yourself in any of the ways where you can take the breath easily.. Keyword: meditation & relaxation. And yes, no need to go to jungle to practice it. can do in front of the TV, PCs, iPad's .. & enojy everything!!... Mostra tutto


Pop Emil
Satyen, the evolution and the science is not the cause of madness today, but the marketing, overdebt, credit to buy anything you can't afford, and the stress to pay back, that yes it's blasting peples mental santy!

Meditation... hmmm, I tried it once in my youth, I found it far below my standards, begginers things, yoga, rubbish.
It was like asking to somebody that is eating logarithms at breackfast to have fun doing some arithmethincs.....you know, one plus two; how much is that?


I might be too picky, or maybe I found a way to balance my life without all the ascetism, meditation and mantras, however, I feel so equilibrated I could sell some...

  4. I believe that depression is being dominated by tensions. Surrender and you can not say more and is caused by the stress of work and the desires or goals to be achieved but does not arrive or are slow to materialize. Frustration can be a cause but more importantly it may seem absurd to breathe, look around the sky and the things around you and that makes you remember you do not have control of everything but nothing like his direction. That at least gives me peace of mind and even though I have a thousand reasons for it tar or been depressed ever reach the end because I always wait to pass the bad moments and always breathing and looking around.
