Depression in the Future

It seems that in the future there is no happy person at all. Every single character that we have encountered in the future suffers from some kind of a problem. Rick's wife Iran is depressed everyday and she stays home making her condition even worse and not seeking for help. Rick feels depressed, too, he is very unhappy with his job, he is also very disappointed with his wife's performance, and he seeks for animals to keep himself happy. J.R. Isidore is haunted by loneliness and emptiness, he hates his job and he thinks that kipple is taking over the world.
It is because of the increased amounts of stress on the people of the future that they are forced to use the mood organ. Without the mood organ life would be so miserable that it would be impossible for the humans in the future to live.

**Depression**: An illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts, that affects the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about things. depression
Sometimes, when a person feels depressed, they do drugs or drink or smoke. These are not good solutions but they seem to make the person feel better. Or are they? The person usually ends up relying on these things every time they feel bad and not only are these things costly, they are also harmful.
-Eat to live, don't live to eat. This saying is one that many people have heard of at least once. When a person is depressed, they may turn to food/eating instead of drugs, etc. They eat not because they are hungry, but because they feel better when they eat. This is "living to eat."
When a person gets depressed, they may stop eating, loose interest in things, have/feel a lack of emotions, social withdrawal or even have a feeling of hopelessness.
Some causes of depression could be the loss of a loved one, boring routine, constant failures and lack of job/money.
