Depression, the killer disease!

Every one of us has problems in official as well as personal life. There is no life without problem! It may be love failure or financial bankruptcy or death of a near & dear one. You have to face the problem courageously and conquer the same without being cow downed by it. Some people plunge into a whirlpool of depression under such circumstances. They go to the extreme end of committing suicide to get rid of the problem. They forget to understand the simple fact that they have not solved the problem by their act of cowardice and it gets passed on to their kith and kin which is more miserable than their demise.

You may be shocked to know that depression is a killer disease. Yes, researchers of University of Bergen, Norway and Institute of Psychiatry, Kings's College, London have done extensive study on this subject and found that depression is as deadly as smoking with a high mortality rate.

It is interesting to note that depression coupled with anxiety contributes to lower mortality rate compared to that of depression alone.

If you undergo depression syndrome, please do not neglect it. Consult your psychiatrist and take remedial steps. Medical treatment and a strong will could definitely help overcome depression.


  1. I agree with you 100%. If you need help then by all means get that help.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. people who r suffering from depression should never hesitate to ask for required help from the freinds and rlatives. in my view opening out is very vital in case of depression.

  3. If they are so open, I think they may even escape depression! The real problem is they brood over unto themselves.
