A friend of mine is really worried about her son (18). She believes he is depressed - girlfriend issues. He appears to show the signs and both my friend and her father suffer from depression during their lives. I mentioned this website that she could take a look because I had noticed young adults on here too. But what has struck me now is the number of young people with such anxiety in their lives. What kind of world do we live in when young people are afraid of being around each other, frightened to go out, frightened to take their first breathe every day. Makes me feel so sad.
