One of my friends was very disturbed and he told me that he is not able to understand what he is doing, why his interest in activities decrease. I talked with him for an hour and I just listened to him. I was trying to understand his mindset. After an hour I finished conversation.
Do you want know what he told me? Yes, Of course! I will tell you. He was suffering from depression. Are you thinking how do I know? I know the signs and symptoms of depression because before 3 years, I was in same condition.
According to WHO (World Health Organization) depression affects over 300 million people worldwide, regardless of culture, age, gender, religion, race or economic status. It is very important to be aware of signs of depression. Let me tell you what did my friend tell me? What did he feel and how did he react? al:
