How many of these professionals, doctors, psychiatrists have actually suffered from depression themselves. Unless you have been through it personally you have no idea what it is like. Only the person who is suffering actually knows how they feel inside, the rest is speculation. Also, has it ever occurred to you that perhaps some people prefer to think that it is a chemical imbalance in their brain which makes them feel the way they do as opposed to thinking this is a normal part of life when very clearly it is not a normal part of life as those who have truly suffered would not wish the way you feel when suffering from depression on their worst enemies. I can’t stand these pompous academics who have nothing better to do in their lives but to speculate, comment and earn money from an illness they truly have no understanding of.
