Any life event can take on crisis proportions if it is experienced as abrupt, extreme, unanticipated, or emotionally super-charged. We experience crisis as bouts of frustration seemingly leaving us without ways to cope or to adjust. Wave after wave of dreadful feeling sweeps over us and we are not able to anticipate when or if this nightmare is ever going to end!
It can be especially tough on love ones, let alone children of somebody with Depression as it could influence their outlook on life for many years to come.
