Dear Mouse,

All of us feel depressed at one time or another. The death of a loved one, divorce, loss of job or other hardships can leave us feeling so down that we doubt we’ll ever be up again.

While most of us pull out of it, lots of others don’t. Women have more chances of suffering from a major depression including the feelings of worthlessness or thoughts of suicide and death.

There is a theory that depression revolves around anger. Women who repressed their anger ,turn it inward and as a result get depressed.

Depressed people with the support system as relatives and friends who can listen and let get things off their chest survive this bleak time.

When depression is chronic, then it is already considered a psychological problem.

It is now a displaced aggression where a person feels that someone she loves has abandoned her, physically or emotionally may turn her anger on herself or to someone she loves.

In other cases, depression may be an escape of life and the stresses.

Here are some stress relievers.

Son: Mom, when I was on the bus with Dad this morning, he told me to give up my seat to a lady.

Mom: Well, you have done the right thing.

Son: But mum, I was sitting on daddy's lap.

Stress Reliever # 2

Father to son after exam: "let me see your report card."

Son: "My friend just borrowed it. He wants to scare his parents."

Stress Reliever # 3

"How was your blind date?" a college student asked her roommate.

"Terrible!" the roommate answered. "He showed up in his 1932 Rolls Royce."

Wow! That's a very expensive car. What 's so bad about that?"

"He was the original owner."
