Hello everybody and Happy New Year! I have this friend, one of my best friend actually, who has been showing signs of depression for a few months. When we get together I can feel he's somewhat down and distant, wich is unlike him. He doesn't talk much about himself so it's hard to know why he's feeling like this. He studies Law and I know he doesn't like it, plus he's got this crappy temp job he hates even more. He's often tired and he's showing some signs: for instant, his signature on MSN messenger is "There's no point. Finally the end of a crappy year and the beginning of another one". The one before was "There are some bad days, and there are some bad days". And he's acting quite pessimistic. My two other friends are concerned about him too and we don't know what to do. When we ask him about it, he just says he's fine, just a little tired. Having beeing depressed myself for 3 years, I know he's not just tired and I wish I could talk to him. But I don't know what to say, because we're not that close. As I said, he doesn't talk about that kind of thing. For now, we're just keeping an eye on him and letting him know that we're here if he wants to talk but I feel like it's not enough. What do you think I should do?
