    I don't miss a thing about it.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I've been having like these short bursts of depressions lately after I wake up. Lasts a few minutes and then its fine again. Although I don't remember them, I think I might be having some seriously depressing dreams lately.

    I work harder when I'm depressed because then I have motivation to improve things.

    Since when we work we get to enjoy greater successes, I do indeed miss being depressed.

    Depression is something that can also make us stronger, more able to deal with intense adversity.

    I had a terrible time a long time ago.
    I don't miss it and am shocked I accomplished what I did.

    I agree with Victor and the others about the drinking. Drinking so that you would have the confidence to act sounds vaguely....self-absusive to me? Like throwing oneself in the path of an oncoming train.

    Did you not know you were feeling badly in the first place?
    Referring to it as being creative almost sounds like...you are detached from yourself, or that the depression is equivalent to self-absorption. Maybe you are remembering/missing the self-absorption and forgetting the actual pain of it?

    I had / have been having / am in the midst of a semi-depressed period, and when I 100% emerge from it, I will not miss it in the slightest. I agree with others on the thread who've said that it's a learning experience, which is technically positive, but there are ways to learn that I'd rather seek out that aren't quite so miserable.

    The only thing I think I could miss is the numbness; I am very willing to admit that numbness is more comfortable than full-blown anxiety, guilt, sadness, etc. However, with that numbness comes a diverse array of frustrating and unwanted side effects that would not be worth it in the end.

    No, I place no sentimental value to the time of being depressed, but it's part of my history I should be aware of. I often reflect some of the changes in my life according to how my depression had affected it. I'm often thinking of alternate paths, but less in terms of what has been and what I could have done, but more in terms of what's possible now, what I want, what's good and how I'll do it. In those thought experiments, I sometimes miss the time *before* the depression, or the time *after* recovery.

    No. I had been clinically depressed for years It would mess with my concentration, and I wouldn't eat much when I was in a funk. Mostly, it messed with my health, for too much sleeping or not enough eating.
