We all have times of feeling discouraged, “blue,” or sad. Some of us have a more difficult experience–long periods of depressed mood, loss of interest in things they once enjoyed, painful thoughts about ourselves and others, struggles with sleep, eating, energy and concentration. Those of us struggling with depression tend to isolate from others. We can feel tangled in cords of hopelessness. This can lead to thoughts about ending our lives.
