Re: Does Depression come and go?
There is no guarantee depression will disappear on its own. If you are talking situational depression then the situation needs to be dealt with or chances are the depression will reappear. I spent years just pushing down the issues so I could go on but they kept coming back and always seemed to come back stronger. Finally my brain said the heck with it and I had a breakdown where I am unable to bury or push aside any of the past issues. Chemical depression almost always requires meds of some sort, some get lucky and over the counter does the trick but others will have to go the chemical route.
The best treatment for depression is to catch it early through the use of therapy and in some cases medication. Waiting it out might work or it is going to make it worse.
