There are many times when someone suffering from
either mental illness or depression may not even
realize there is a problem. I have suffered from
depression myself. I was completely unaware of what
was wrong with me, my family doctor pointed it out to
me, as I did not have any one else around me that
recognized the symptoms. It was hard for me to accept
at first, but after having the hard facts placed in front of
my face and understanding that it may get worse, I had
no choice but to get help. A lot of people who suffer
from such problems tend to be more alone than
anyone realizes. I suspect that anyone who was
unaware of their condition would probably be shocked,
as I was, to have someone confront them about it. A
good friend would confront them anyway, and
hopefully they would seek help.
