Depression is one of the most misunderstood illnesses of all time. In fact, you may have it but may not even be aware of it. This illness is deceptive, particularly when you are, in fact, enjoying what could be considered to be a normal, healthy life. The strong and silent type, for instance, could be suffering in silence. That’s why sometimes a strong leader suddenly disappears from the world at the end of a rope in his garage one afternoon.
Even for the strongest and bravest among us, help is always at hand when it is suspected that an emotional breakdown is occurring and there’s this inability to reach out to someone close by. By turning to a neuroscience resource information page online, you could learn more about yourself than you thought you knew. If you are unwilling to talk to someone at this time, whether she is a close family member or a psychological or psychiatric specialist, you could always do some listening.
As a man of few words, you are still an able bodied listener. You could tune in to lectures that might be closely related to a condition you suspect you may have. Because good communication is at issue in your family, you could also learn through these lectures or through archived materials what’s been going on with other members of your family. Then you can respond positively, not necessarily having to resort to drastic actions such as punishing a delinquent child.
Help is at hand when emotional breakdowns occur and there’s no one to turn to just yet. Take this reassurance and at least begin to do some reading and research.
