    For those on the right and the left, I seriously doubt anxiety and depression being on the rise has much, if anything, to do with politics.
    Thanks from boontito and johnflesh

    It DOES have to do with economics, however. We KNOW that depression rose along with the Great Recession. I can find some scientific links to back this if you doubt it.

    Major depression is on the rise among Americans from all age groups, but is rising fastest among teens and young adults, new health insurance data shows.

    Depression rates also vary a lot state by state, with Rhode Island having the highest rate of depression at 6.4 percent. Hawaii has the lowest rate — 2.1 percent.

    The findings cover people with commercial health insurance — Blue Cross and Blue Shield — so they’re not fully representative. But most people in the U.S. are covered by a commercial health plan.

    Any idea why depression is on the rise?





    I wonder how much of that has to do with all those commercials for happy pills.

    Totally disagree, the whole nation is on edge, we have a dotard tweeting hate and lies in the WH. That’s a virus spreading anxiety and depression.

    I agree with you completely. Everyone I know belonging to any group that has been publicly targeted by this administration (which is almost everyone I know since there are so many) is feeling the weight of a world that has seemingly turned against them. I look at what's going on around me, and how can I not be depressed? We've gone so far backwards in so short of a time. It feels like every gain we fought to make towards equality over the last decade has been almost completely erased, and the hordes are cheering for it and begging for more.

    And now Israel and Iran may be going at it? Fuuuuuuccckkk. I didn't think it was possible to get even more depressed. Shows you what I know.
    Thanks from Babba

    Yeah right, who yells at reporters trying to do their job and cover Trump’s rallies? It ain’t the Independents or Democrats or the
    Typical Republican. Its the cult Trump. Instead of banging tambourines and chanting they are spreading hate and that’s depressing.

    If you've never read it, I highly recommend:



    It was written back in 2000 I think, so basically before social media really existed the way it does today. However it does set a stage on which social media would easily drive people further apart and isolate them more, despite the name "social media".

    Because this country and the world sucks, people working longer hours for less and less money , live paycheck to paycheck and barely get by, have no savings, can't afford any vacations

    But having a snake-oil salesman, a huckster, and a fraud in the White House might explain some of it.
    Great, so they have a job, much of it paying them barely enough to get by as the costs of everything goes up
