1. Hello, Mr. Reymark Simbulan. Please do not consider yourself a weak person. Major depressive disorder is an illness and NEVER a sign of weakness. The fact that you are seeking professional help is already a sign of strength. Treatment includes medications to correct the imbalance of chemicals in the brain and psychotherapy from qualified therapists. I too have major depressive disorder and have attempted to commit suicides in the past. I was able to do that twice but I survived. I am glad that you did. Continue with your treatment and follow your doctor. You have lots of moral and emotional support from your family, relatives and friends there in the Philippines. Always think that recovery is on your way. Best wishes and may God bless you.
