My basic goal is to learn more about happiness or like depression. Depression seems like a good topic to learn about because its a mental illness and it would be cool to learn how it happens.
My second priorities are….i don’t really have another priority i want to learn about.
By May of 2011, I’d like to have read a few books on that topic and learned something about it.
A more immediate goal for me is that i want to have reasonably clear abd supportable opinions about the following questions:
1.)What triggers depression?
2.)How can you tell if a person is depressed?
3.)Can depression ever go away?
4.)What is the difference between manic depression and plain depression?
5.)What are the different stages of depression?
6.)Can it be treated in a more natural way other than medication?
7.)What are the signs of depression?
8.)Is depression more common in adults or children?
9.)How does depression make a person feel about themselves?
10.)Can a person overcome it by themselves like if they never told anybody?
The 10 books listed in order from most promising to least that i found on Amazon.com and that will help me both with my learning goals and in answering the questions above are:
