    Brainstorms I: Depression

    Brainstorms I: Depression

    Let’s start with an introduction. My name is Laura and I am a current MSc student in neuroscience and future PhD in psychiatry. In these last years, I have come to realize how little communication there is between scientists and the rest of society. Science is always advancing, creating new tools and obtaining new knowledge that can be of use to everyone, or that can pose new ethical questions on which society as a whole should have a say. But how is anyone going to take advantage of the new information or generate a debate with it, if it is not made available to them in an accessible and comprehensible way?

    Depression

    For about seven years now I’ve been dealing with depression. Some days are better than others. It is very difficult at times to handle my depression, because I want to be able to control my feelings, and I know at times I can’t.

    Depression

    Let's not hold back here. Depression is completely shattering. It shatters relationships, families; LIVES. I cannot begin to tell you how many times my depression had shattered good things I loved having in my life. And you know what happens after all those good things are gone? More depression. More over thinking. More just 'wanting to die' and 'I can't do this anymore'. And it feels no matter what you do, depression is right around the corner waiting patiently for your unsettling appearance, just to wear you down a thousand times more.

    According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over three percent of the American population suffers from depression at some point in their life.

This can be detrimental to one's health, but if you are one that must bear this burden, know that there are things you can do to fight the negative feelings and keep your depression symptoms from completely taking over. You may make some routine changes to make things a tad bit better.
