Depression... we, the non-depressed, think it's just a disease affecting people, making them sad, sad people. But that's just a general "description", if you will, of the disorder. It actually includes a loss of interest and pleasure in everyday activities and a low self-esteem. Can you imagine not being able to enjoy anything at all, even eating?!

One treatment for depression is Xanax, I'm sure we've all heard of it from Desperate Housewives, or something. Then some have therapy to go with it. For others, it's religion. Like Sammi Cheng, HK Canto-Pop singer and born-again Christian, says, God saved her from her depression and changed her outlook on life. It's all very miraculous and all that.

And to end: did you know, Vincent van Gogh committed suicide partly because of depression?
