Take Depression Seriously…It Might Prove Fatal

Two different shooting incidents in two malls, two different people involved, two different stories… one underlying reason.

In a span of one week, local news reported of two crimes of passion. Four people killed in two different circumstance; all because of spurned love. Some people blame the lapse in security. More stringent security measures could have detected the pistols and averted the crimes. These lapses in security can easily be addressed by re-training and by enforcing more stringent regulations. What is harder to address though is the primary cause of the assaults.

Spurned love is nothing new. Probably all of us suffered from heartache once in our lives. There are a few individuals though who are not able to keep hold of their emotions and fall into depression. More often than not, we ignore the severity of depression thinking that a person just has the blues and we merely advise him to “move on” or “get over it”. Sadly, quite a number of people suffering from depression are incapable of moving on. They do take matters in their own hands; unfortunately, they often choose the easy way out.

In the Philippines, the current suicide rate is 2.10 out of 100,000. It’s relatively low compared to other countries but that does not discount the fact that people do take their own lives, sometimes even the lives of others, in their own hands. If only depression rehab treatment centers were common in our country, those who are unable to cope with life’s travails can easily seek help from professionals.

Depression is a serious medical condition that needs serious attention. It is not something that will go away on its own. There are a number of treatments available such as CBD. Visiting https://cbd360.de/kaufen/ will provide more information on this. As well as using cbd oil to help manage the symptoms of depression, the use of cannabis strains (if legal in your state) such as bruce banner can also play a part in treating patients with depression. Before committing yourself to anything, be sure to do your research, just so you have a better understanding.

One thing we can do is to watch out for certain telltale signs of depressions in our loved ones for us to be able to properly intervene and help them cope with their condition. Here are some signs to watch out for:

  • feelings of sadness, hopelessness or worthlessness
  • irritability and restlessness
  • lack of sleep or oversleeping
  • persistent feelings of guilt
  • loss of interest in activities he previously liked
  • change in appetite, sudden loss or gain in weight
  • difficulty in making decisions or in concentrating
  • alcohol or drug abuse
  • having suicidal thoughts

If someone you love shows any sign of depression, most especially if he has suicidal thoughts, do take time to talk to him and connect to his emotions. While there are other ways you can help him to get help, such as arranging drug testing in Chicago, or wherever may be local, if you belive he is abusing drugs, just simply sitting down and talking with them as it could make a real difference. However, sometimes talking alone is not enough and other measures can be taken. Some people decide to make use of phoenix tears and other weed-related products to combat their depression, it might be worth considering. Seek professional help if possible to hasten his recovery. Most importantly, shower him with love and understanding to give him hope where he thinks there is none.
