+12Help By: omegaopinions March 27, 2018 As most people know, depression a mental illness that is caused by a number of things. One thing that causes depression, as Hellen Farrell from TED-ED states, “The abnormal transmission or depletion of certain neurotransmitters.” Today, I will be arguing to why people with depression shouldn’t think it’ll go away without help from doctors or medications because depression is harmful both mentally and physically, and overpopulated. Physically, depression can be harmful because people may commit suicide. As Ann Pietrangelo from Healthline says, “350 million: number of people people worldwide who suffer from depression” This number is quite large, and suicide is not an uncommon thing. People may also affect their body in ways like changes in appetite. Mentally, people will have symptoms that make them feel certain ways. Some symptoms that support this are feeling worthless or guilty, or low mood. Now, some people out there say “Depression isn’t real!”. To those people, i’d like you to keep in mind that some people with depression may look fine, but are actually suffering from this ever-growing illness. Too many people have depression. As said earlier, 350 million people worldwide have depression. Though this number may seem small compared to the 7 billion people on this earth, as Hellen Farrell states, ”According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it takes the average person suffering with a mental illness over 10 years to ask for help,” With the 3 million people who get depression each year in the U.S alone, it won’t take long before more and more people get depression. Lots of people think they can treat depression by themselves, and they’ll be “fine” and “can handle themselves.” Now, I don’t want to make those people feel worse, but depression isn’t something you can just get over. Just like you can’t get over a broken leg, or a dislocated shoulder. You need help to treat those things, and there are lots of people who can help. It is important to treat depression, and there are natural treatments such as these from Morgan Griffin from WebMD, “...Set goals...Eat Healthy...Try to Have Fun.” That’s all for today. Hopefully, this speech has educated you on the effects of depression. And to those who have depression, I hope that now you know what you’re facing, you can help yourself make the right choice. You now know why people with depression shouldn’t think it’s treatable with help from others or medications because it is harmful both mentally and physically, and is overpopulated. Thank you for listening to me.

+3So The Pope has Apparrently met with the leaders of multiple oil companies to discuss “Climate Change”. Obviously Vatican science has come a long way ever since the whole “flat Earth/ center of the Universe/ sun revolves around us/ kill everybody who disagrees debate”. Lol
If you had the time and money and were assured (somehow supernaturally I guess...just pretend) that no bodily harm would come to you, where in the world would you go? More

Someone once told me that the definition of Hell is that “on that last day you have on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.” The question is, who is the person you will face when your time comes? Will you have accomplished things that you wanted to accomplish? Would you have seen the things you wanted to see? Would you have experienced everything that you have always wanted to experience? I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest fears is feeling regret at the end of my life, knowing that I did not do all that I could have done. The average lifespan of a person living in the United States is 27,375 days. If you are 25 years old, you have 18,250 days left to live. If you are 50, you have 9,125 days to live. If you are 65, you have 3,650 days to live. How many days do you have left before it is too late to live the life you want? Despite the popular quote stating otherwise, there comes a time when it IS too late to be the person you could've been. I’ve got at most 14,600 days left to live my life, and I'm going to make them count by continuing to try to make a difference in this messed up world, traveling, reading books which make me think, spending time with people I love, and more. What do you want to do in the time you have left? If you died today, would you be satisfied with how you lived your life?

Getting old is.... earth shoes. Getting old is.... feeling good that you got something started. Better yet....finished.
