"Actually sounds like a great father/son bonding moment. I would have been extremely awkward with my dad in that situation, especially at 13. I got the "talk" from my dad the summer before middle school. While he didn't go into much…"

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.

"It was more of something that I noticed. I'm a lot colder physically. In general, I run a bit hot. Admittedly, it may not have been a "life change", but merely an observation."
