is it better to force someone with depression to do things or is it better to leave then alone?

Re: depression

A balance needs to be struck. Encourage them to do things so they do not crawl into a hole....and at times rest is good.

Re: depression

Well, personally, I hate when my husband and other family encourage me to be social when I'm depressed. I don't want to be around people when I feel bad, and I wish at least he could understand that. I just prefer to isolate until it blows over, that way I'm not hurting the ones I love. I tend to lash out angrily really bad when I'm depressed. Fortunately, I seem to have it under control for now, except for when the full moon hits, then I like to stay in my 'cave' until it's over. I just feel it's best for my love ones. Again, just my experience.
