    Melancholy is beautiful. I enjoy it almost more than anything. To be more precise, I associate melancholy with such things as cherry blossoms, where you feel the beauty of life so intensely it hurts you in your heart and puts tears in your eyes, and the simultaneous realization that it will all die, that the world is so fragile gives a sense of urgency and a push to the longing for the beauty to stay.

    Not the same as clinical depression. I can enjoy melancholy when I'm medicated. What I can't do is get out of bed and go to work, or if I manage that, actually perform at all once I get there.

    Probably because people have too much time on their hands. One main thing that feeds depression is rumination if we are being honest (other than a potential chemical imbalance, of course). . Also, crap diet and sedentary lifestyles add to it too.

    There's some idiot force at work constantly trying to keep me down and in this place. I'm always miserable at the hand of this thing, then at random (frequent) moments it just gets that much worse. It happens especially when I try to start doing anything.

    I guess I do. But the thing is, depression has become too much of a catch-all. I think clinical depression diagnoses are given for a wide range of different symptoms, with different causes, susceptible to different treatments, leading to different prognoses. I struggle with one of the many clusters of things that happens to get a clinical depression diagnosis.
