According to the World Health Organisation, there are more than 300 million people who suffer from depression worldwide.
Depression can be described as feelings of sadness, loss or anger that interfere with a person’s everyday life activities.
People who suffer from it may experience it in a different way, for many it interferes with their daily activities, such as school and work. They tend to lose interest in things that they ussually enjoy doing.
Most of the time people who have depression want to isolate themselves and ussually lock themselves in their rooms and do not want any visitors. Some end up committing suicide.
At the moment there is no cure but, it is a manageable condition. It can be dangerous because it could cause chronic illnesses and for some could even lead to death.
Facebook user Ruby Gold wrote on her facebook page that she was going to die, she wrote this in a poem saying that she feels death knocking and she was drowning in her own tears.
At first it looked like she was trying to get attention, but it turns out she was serious. People only realized this after she shared another post where she wrote this
“I actually spoke out. I asked for help. I swallowed my pride and asked for help.
I really did. but, no one could help.
I met with either silence, rejection, or NO.
But then, I still say, Thank You!”
She later shared another post below.
She shocked everyone when she took her life the following day.
