My 10 year old sister is currently effected by major depression. She is crabby all the time, and her mood changes on a dime. She goes from yelling to acting like a happy little kid in seconds, then goes back again. She is losing/has lost most of her friends because either she feels the are beeing mean to her, or she is too moody with them (everything is blown out of proportion for her). Our whole family has a history of depression (mostly mild, but it's definatly there). She is getting some help, but not much is avaliable. So now I ask those who have lived with someone depressed (particulary someone around 10), how can it be dealt with at home? Around here, she's like a live hand grenade. Everyone has no patience for anything, which is a problem when someone is firing trouble every which way. So how can you live with it? Has anyone been in the same boat?
