Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

For years I thought I have depression, because, well, I'm depressed all the time. But now I think I don't have the actual illness, but just a shitty life. I don't know if it even makes a difference, but somehow this seems like a huge discovery for me - I'm just not sure if positive or negative.

  • In just the last couple of decades doctors have been heavily encouraged to understand depression and just a chemical imbalance, because this ideology sells pills. while symptoms of depression can be chemical imbalances and many times people can have great lives and be chemically depressed, but that is really not the norm, at best they're outliers. what you ,OP, is feeling, is that your depression is inside your realm of capability of action. that basically means you are in the majority group of people who don't have chemical depression, they just make bad choices with their times and don't do things they actually want to do or don't feel in peace with whatever they actually want to do which might be some bizzarre or even illegal shit
