Medicines for depression taken by Masayoshi Shimamura. He struggled with depression for 6 years. His wife, Hideko, says "He wanted to quit his job and took some rest to treat depression, but he could not afford to lose his job because he had to take care of the family. If he told the company about his depression, he would have been demoted, transferred to a remote place or just pushed aside and not given any important work. He had been in sales for all his working life so he didnt have confidence that he could do something else, given the bad economic situation in Japan."
