There was a thread a while back where we discussed depression. I remember a few posters stating that it was permanent and that it always comes back...

When depression is onset by a traumatic event such as the loss of a loved one, can it be temporary? If so, how does one differentiate depression from bouts of sadness?

Maybe in can for some.  For me, the intensity just eased.  The first two years were utter hell.  As a suicide survivor I can say suicide is a tricky death because people don't know what to say or do.  You think obviously they wanted to die.  You blame yourself.  You wonder terrible things like if God will forgive them.  The worst part for me is the constant fear of losing someone else I love.  My mother has heart failure and has some really bad days where I feel that weight on my chest pressing the air out.  I have a wild little brother who gets caught up sometimes but I love him so much and can't bear the thought of losing him.  

So to answer the question, I think the depression can ease but the sadness doesn't or at least hasn't for me.  It's been 10 years since my sister shot herself in the head.  I still get very, very sad.

Karyn Washington's Close Friend Addresses Misinformation on Her Death


Last week the death of beauty and lifestyle blogger Karyn Washington, of apparent suicide, sent the blogosphere into shock. The creator of For Brown Girls touched the lives of many women with her message of self-love and empowerment, but Karyn's close friend, Yumnah Najah, wants to offer some clarity on her life and legacy.

In this video blog, Yumnah says assumptions that Karyn's suicide was the result of insecurity about her appearance are false. According to Yumnah, Karyn had been having a difficult time dealing with the recent death of her mother.

Yumnah offers a moving tribute to the loss of her friend. Watch below.

I'm really sorry to hear about your sister.

Thank you so much for clarifying this...
