I've been told that one never fully gets over being sexually abused even if it doesn't involve rape. I personally agree, but think it is possible to learn to live with it and to have a good life in spite of it. What do you all think? What about depression? Do you think depression can be hereditary? Or do you think all forms of depression can be cured overtime with treatment. I've had it for over 10 years now. My Mom has had it for most of her life and i think some of my other relatives suffer from it too. Do you all think getting rid of my depression completely is a feesible goal for me? Or do you think i should just aim at managing it and trying to lead a productive life in spite of my condition?
