Life Is Precious, But Depression Hurts

In local news, two tragedies greeted me this morning.

Lisa Colagrossi was a respected reporter on Channel 7. On Thursday, she died unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm. She was 49.

In the Midwood section of Brooklyn, 7 children ages five to fifteen lost their lives in a house fire. Their parents had 8 children in total, only one survived.

One of the symptoms of depression is suicidal thoughts.  While those suffering from depression realize that we only have one life and should live it to the fullest, it is difficult when we wake up in the morning and are bombarded by thoughts of suicide.

Death is permanent. Life is impermanent. With depression,the sufferer knows that they want to live, but the desire to end it all never completely disappears.
