What causes and treats clinical depression, and can it be prevented?

I have been being treated for several mental illnesses for over 30 years and depression is one of them. My clinical depression was brought on by stress and tried to please everyone and did whatever it took. I was everything to everyone; wife, daughter, mother, sister, maid, employee, friend, chef, accountant, financial advisor, etc. It became too much over a long period of time and I had a nervous breakdown. I was checked out of life for 6 months.

I don’t think it can be prevented. I know it can be treated with medication and professional help. Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain. Medication helps balance the imbalance and control the amount it affects a person.

Getting away from toxic people in your life. Start seeing yourself as a person. Not a subject not another child in the house. But a grown up with an opinion. Not everyone has to like your opinion but it's yours and you have the right to have it.

Remember to stay on your meds.
