Patient discussion about economics

Q. how do you lift your spirit during those tough days of economic depression?

A. just find an activity that will take your mind off things.(i.e.)fishing,games,puzzles,camping,etc.

Q. how come depression became so common??? is it because the great economic crises ...? because i get the feeling that it has been like that for a while ...

A. That's an eye opening list. I have read most of Kurt Vonnegut's books. He really went through hell on earth during the allied bombing of Dresden in World War II as a prisoner of war. He had been captured at the Battle of the Bulge. That was no cakewalk.

Overwhelming circumstances. Things happen that are too much to rationalize. They happen to us all. Deaths, accidents, tragedies, illnesses, losses, being a victim of crimes or injustices, war, seeing people die, witnessing horrible things... that list can go on and on. We humans are fragile, have limitations, and we break.
