Depression: How does it affect everyday life and relationships?

How does depression affect people? How does it affect a relationships? a marriage? Life as a family.

This is I realized a very taboo subject. People who have depression feel ashamed and therefore it is not received well in the social world. The more we talk about it, the more people will get help.

Hopefully this documentary will help men realized it is OK to get help.

I also hope people will understand that it is not just one person affected, but the spouse also. Suddenly your husband become another child that you need to take care of. There is so much pressure on the spouse that people can not even fathom.

I was very grateful to have found a family in Raleigh that was willing to share their life with me, and share  how depression affects their everyday life.

Ryan is 30 years old and he lives with his wife Renee 29 years old and  son Aiden just turned one.

They have been married for 3 years. Ryan has been diagnosed with depression

Renee and Ryan are so lucky to have an incredible support in their family. Ryan’s parents have come to visit often to help Renee. Renee’s parents have flown back and fourth to help also. How great to be able to talk about this issues and to have parents caring enough to get in the middle of this crisis.

Ryan’ parents left last week and Renee’s parents are coming back next week.

Not eating appropriately, not sleeping enough, not exercising, seems to have triggered the depression to be back.

He is on new medicine  and right now it is pretty imbalanced.

These photos will be taken over 4 weeks course of their lives. I will continue another 4 weeks.

Comment la dépression a des repercutions sur les personnes? Comment cela affecte une relation? un mariage? La vie en famille.

La depression ,j’ai réalisé un sujet très tabou. Les gens qui souffrent de dépression en ont honte et par conséquent, il ne veulent pas etre aider. Ce sujet n’est pas tres bien reçu dans le monde social. Mon objectif  est bien sur plus on en parle, plus les gens vont chercher de l’aide.

Espérons que ce documentaire va aider surtout les hommes, et demontrer que il est OK pour eux d’ obtenir de l’aide

Je suis très reconnaissante d’avoir trouvé une famille à Raleigh qui était prête à partager leur vie avec moi, et comment la dépression affecte leur vie quotidienne.

Ryan a 30 ans et il vit avec sa femme Renée 29 ans. Ils ont un fils Aiden vient d’avoir un an.

Ils sont mariés depuis 6 ans. Ryan a été diagnostiquer avec de la dépression depuis maintenant des annees. En 2002, il a été hospitalisé pendant environ 6 semaines.

Ne pas manger comme il faut,  pas assez de sommeil,pas d’exercice,  semble avoir déclenché le retour de la dépression.

Il est sous nouveau medicament et en ce moment il est assez déséquilibré.

Ces photos ont été prises plus de 4 semaines de cours de leur vie, et je vais continuer pendant encore 4 semaines.
