I struggle with one of the many clusters of things that happens to get a clinical depression diagnosis.
    I completely agree with this.

    (I am by no means an expert on depression, tho...)

    Didn't the Chinese diagnose over 20 forms of depression some thousands of years ago? Or something?

    I used to be legitimately depressed. But nowadays I'm just incredibly stressed and moody. It's nice to know the difference.

    Yep. I have once, and currently do again. I don't identify with it or have any desire to claim it as a part of myself. No part of sadness appeals to me because nothing justifies the effects of it on your objective life, and the same certainly goes for chronic depression.

    I relate to feeling that, especially when I was younger, but not so much to enjoying it.

    I went through about a year of being rather psychotically depressed at one point during college. Pretty much everything had gone wrong over the course of the year leading up to it and I ended up snapping at something as minor as a car accident in the end. I went a week without sleeping before finally being given a prescription to sleeping pills... the worst part was the fact that I was utterly convinced that I was possibly the worst person in the history of humanity and that I was guilty of shit that I couldn't possibly have done. And voices... yeah... I heard voices that pretty much reinforced every bit of that and they certainly weren't mine. I was pretty much convinced that I'd actually gone full out, institutionalizably insane, which was rather upsetting because my brain has always been the one thing that I could depend on. Oh yeah, and antidepressants really didn't work... apparently they don't really on that type of depression.

    *shudder* I can still remember laying awake at night and hearing that if I killed myself I wouldn't have to put up with any of that anymore... It was pretty fucking horrible

    Apparently having experienced one episode even puts a person at a much greater risk to slip back into that again in the future... as in a significant risk... I'm pretty terrified of that actually

    Congratulations. You're not depressed.

    I think "depression" is a lose term now and it's tossed around a lot. Most people who say they are 'depressed' aren't clinically depressed. I think there should be a distinction.
