From the author, Amber Rain, on coping with a depressed person:
All of us are hit with the blues now and then, and that’s not unusual. When we are challenged or hit rough spots in our lives, most of us are inclined to saywe are “depressed” without giving it a second thought. But upon scrutiny we have to know that depression is much more than just feeling sad. In fact depression is a condition that causes you to feel much more than sadness.
People with depression also feel hopeless, insignificant, and helpless, and these feelings can dominate for days, weeks, or even longer. Depression affects normal functioning and can start to affect the various aspects of life in general.
When we find out someone close to us has depression, we may feel at a loss with regards to how we can help and how we can reach out. To be able to help someone with depression, we should start with knowing what depression is and how it affects someone in daily life. If we take that extra step to arm ourselves with the knowledge we need to help the people we care about, then we may very well become important factors in their recovery and healing processes.
