The signs of Depression in Brett Seymour

According to his wife, the signs of Brett having depression came to light with the devastating accident which he had. She was at home and expecting him to be watching the Rugby match at home. But he swept out of the house and had a tragic accident with susceptible spinal injury. When she reached the hospital to be with him, he was crying so uncontrollably. She had not seen her husband and partner of 12 years so upset and distressed. He kept on saying he wanted to die. He had actually tried to commit suicide.

He never mentioned to her that he is not fine and has depression. He always after coming home from a bad game, mentioned that he is in a bad mood sue to bad game. No other signs were there. Now the things were very visible. After his treatment, Brett became more and more grown up as a person, and has better clarity and understanding about his own self and nature.

Sometimes crying or laughing
are the only options left,
and laughing feels better right now.
