“John* had seemed less like himself lately, and his wife Celeste* had started to notice. He laughed less, and when he was at home all he wanted to do was sleep. They had only been married for a few years, so it was very noticeable when John’s libido suddenly went down the drain.

Celeste wondered, what happened to her once happy-go-lucky husband? The guy who used to be the life of the party now just went to work, school, and hardly did anything else. She grew concerned. When she would ask him what was wrong, he would just shrug his shoulders. After a while, she took her concerns to a family member, who was a retired therapist. The therapist recommended that Celeste talk to John and help him get in to see someone.”

There is so much important information in this article, you should go read it even if you’re loved ones don’t currently exhibit any signs of depression. It’s so important that we look out for each other and know the signs. Let’s face it, statistics indicate that at some point, you are going to know someone dealing with depression, if you don’t yourself. How much better off would we all be if we knew the signs, and what to do?

Believe me, even though it’s been years since I’ve had to deal with my won depression, my wife knows what to look for, and what to do.

And I feel a lot better knowing that she does.
