Cathegories F32-F33 from ICD-10 would like to have a word with you.
I just read both sections.
I understand having a depressive episode.
I don't agree that it's a non-controllable disorder to have reoccurring depression.
Maybe it's more difficult, but I think it's being abused for excuses.
You do know that people can be treated with medicine that fixes chemical imbalances in their brain which causes depression, right? Like, they studied how well these medicines worked vs a placebo, and it really does work. Meaning it's not something you can willingly control.
Again, personally, I find that to be a state of mind. If someone convinces you that a pill will make you happier. Then you will try it, if you have faith that the pill is working. You will be happier. The pill could be a freaking m&m. If you think it will help you get better, it will.
You don't understand clinical trials testing drugs against placebos, do you? emotion_facepalm
