    i agree the actual depression can get in the way of seeking treatment, but this woman was diagnosed and treated. she obviously responded enough to treatment to be out and about.

    i personally know people who are medicated and cope just fine, and i know others who can't seem to work. of course, they have no problem enjoying the other aspects of life, it's just too tough to hold down a job. i know that sounds cynical, but it's true.

    I was just speaking in general terms, like you were in the post I replied to.

    I'm sure. And that's one of the tough things about depression. People who don't have it don't get it. They can't understand why sufferers don't just "get over it" or "cheer themselves up."

    No, you said you know alot of people with depression. More than the average person, it sounds like. So you're either depressed, have a depressed family member, or you're some kind of therapist, or a combination of these.

    I'm such a Sherlock Holmes.
