    Neither. It's an anxiety disorder.

    Bipolar II. Diagnosed 9 years ago. That diagnosis was the best thing to ever happen to me.

    I had major depression from 16 to 19 yrs of age. That was due to circumstances though. Not once did the doctors ask why i was depressed, just kept giving me the zombie tablets. I took an overdose (1 was cry for help, 2 was the real deal) when i was 19. Funny thing was when i was released from hosptial and saw the doctor again, i was given the zombie tablets. The same tablets that were used to take the overdose a few days earlier. Waste of space doctors are sometimes.

    Since then,

    INTP.. yes, I've battled depression/ anxiety off and on for years. I had a pretty deep dose of it last year, but things worked themselves out. I was told that there was a suspicion if bipolar there, but I haven't seen any symptoms in quite a while.

    Life is good now.. I've learned enough from the past mistakes to know how to avoid going there again.

    Ugh. Don't get me started! I agree with this a lot! Wait...the doctors feeding meds to patients instead of talking through issues. Although, meds are needed in some instances. But it should be both. Meds AND counseling...they go hand in hand.

    I was in a mental space that could have probably qualified as major depression for about 6 months, but it was related to life events, so I answered no in the poll. It was the way I worked through things, and I think it was a pretty natural response, more akin to grieving than a disorder.

    I don't think I've ever had a mood disorder before. There are times when I can be somewhat depressive, but it is because of life events, not just the for the sake of being depressive.

    Depression and anxiety for several years. Probably also bipolar.

    I've just been coming out of it (more or less) recently.

    And therapists are a waste of time. I don't recommend falling into their scams. (I know how I feel, how do I get rid of it?)

    Therapy has helped me immensely, particularly when I had a specific problem to solve. YMMV but in general I think it's been shown that therapy and medication together work better than either one alone. Therapy isn't like a carwash, though, where you sit there and let the therapist fix you. They only facilitate, provide a framework/guidance system. You have to do the work yourself.
