    I just don't think you can always assume that success at work, financial success, health, good diet means you can't or shouldn't be depressed. I'd be willing to bet that the paradox of those successes in contrast to the feelings of depression must weigh on him even more.

    Reminds me a lot of the postpartum depression my wife went through after the birth of our children. The fact that she has this child that she wanted so much, yet it was difficult and didn't always make her happy really contributed to the depression.

    But I agree with everyone who mentioned seeking help. I have in my life and while I'm by no means cured of what ails me, it certainly is positive to speak with someone who truly listens to you.
