    i agree with Dr. Sheth....supression, repression = depression....but may I add, that it can be internal or external (Report) Reply

    you reach the core of the suject and write a few lines which are apt, these lines can be written as a foreword for any book on depression nice and fine (Report) Reply

    yes, you are right, Sandra.Very true..But for me, we don't have to be over sensitive, but just go ahead and look forward for positive approach.

    This reminds me of that recent study that came out; the more responsibility and less control you have (in other words, being a worker bee but having no say) the more stress can cause all kinds of problems. Great words of wisdom. (Report) Reply

    Your senryu on depression could not have been expressed any better, Sandra, for every word you said is quite true. Carl. (Report) Reply

    VERY TRUE SANDRA....SOMETIMES YOUR IDEAS WOULD BE SUPPRESSED WITHOUT EVEN BEING EVALUATED OR YOU WOULD NOT BE TOLD 'WHY? '...AND THAT DEFINITELY DEPRESSES GENUINE THINKING PEOPLE WHO WOULD USUALLY APPRECIATE ANY GOOD IDEA FROM ANY ONE...THIS IS A POWER GAME...LOVELY SENRYU...VERY PRACTICAL...EVERYBODY CAN RELATE TO IT (Report) Reply
