TBF IMO it's understandable (I say this as someone who has occasionally suffered.) The word 'depression' is misused in the same way that 'flu' is misused for a common cold.
I sometimes wonder if it might be time for a new word to be used instead.
For awhile, it sort of worked to distinguish by saying "clinical depression", but the whole field of discussion has become too pop-science to do that now.That's a bloody good idea. Tbf I'm guilty of saying "I'm depressed" totally out of context or maybe "I'm a bit OCD about that" when clearly I'm not.
Other than for the same people to make the same unwarranted complaints about Rose over and over again.The full interview is here
There's really nothing to it.
Maybe hes 30 and had other dreams? Like meeting a girl, having kids, maybe hes lonely? who knows, Stop judging people. Other than the money hes not that different to anyone else here. He was on the verge of becoming one of the best LB's in Europe, Rose and Walker were arguably one of the best full back pairings in the world at one point. Players have to make peace with alot of things in a very short career. Look at the state of Jan the other night. Hes prob the best LB we had Spurs since I been watching for 25 years and he could have been one of the very best in the league, must play alot on a players mind.man is a millionaire, playing football everyday and he is depressed
Ok so being rich doesn't mean you can't be depressed. Though being wealthy with depression is easier than being poor with depression. Simply because depression has the possibility of serious material consequences that wealth essentially dilutes. So I agree, don't be like he's rich he cant be depressed blablabla.Maybe hes 30 and had other dreams? Like meeting a girl, having kids, maybe hes lonely? who knows.
I didnt mention depression in my post because I really have no exopertise in the matter the guy i quoted didOk so being rich doesn't mean you can't be depressed.

But individual things, failed dreams etc are rarely the cause of depression. Sometimes a trigger but rarely the cause. It's really not as simple as one event. I've had two bouts of depression, the first time the trigger was looking at my brother pour hot water on an anthill. But this was simply a trigger which came in the context of a period of my life with a lot of change, a lot of unknowns and fair deal of stress as well as general existential anguish. The causes of depression are complicated and they can rarely be summarised as coming from one thing and often come from long term stresses and whatnot, as well as just certain kind of attitudes and personality and, yes, also genetics . There are a lot of people who are depressed who have no idea why or how they ended up like that. A lot of people can't articulate why and, again, it's normally a accumulation of lots of things not just one or two things that make you sad.
Also, I think the reason I felt the need to reply to this post is that when you are depressed, your dreams go out the window, forget about wanting to meet a girl, having kids or just dealing with people in general. The instinct is to withdraw inside yourself and in my experience leaves you with a lack of any motivation at all. I mean don't get me wrong these are all part and potential triggers of depression, but it just feels simplistic.
I agree. I listened to the interview, he didn't sound bitter, he appeared to be honest about his own shortcomingsDon't read the headline, don't read the spin. This is the important sentence in that interview:
"I'd love to be the player I was three years ago when I was doing well. I thought I would return to become that player after the injury, but I had a rude awakening."
Rose doesn't lie and doesn't bullshit. Not to himself and not to the press.
Millions of people do have mental health problems. I have a fairly serious problem with anxiety and sometimes that anxiety develops into depression.The thing is, millions of people have mental health problems and aren’t dicks. He’s just a dick I’m afraid. Mental health problem or not, it doesn’t mean you have to behave like he does. He’s always played with a chip on his shoulder and over the last couple of years has shown his true colours.
