Was there a certain event in your life, or something someone said, that you believe may have triggered your depression? I come from a broken home, and I've been told on more than one occasion that most people who suffer with depression come from broken homes, too. I, personally, believe the two aren't linked in any way, as my mother always cared for me to the best of her abilities. I often sit and think, but nothing really springs to mind. I was never bullied in school, have never been humiliated, and have never lived through anything which has made me overly sad.
