Depression is depression whether its a chemical imbalance or situational.

Obviously you haven't suffered or know anyone who has from Depression.
If you did, you wouldn't have created one of the most ignorant threads I've seen on ats.
Sorry about the title being a tad bit misleading. I figured, though, if I made the title a statement I agree with, such as "Depression is a Real Disorder", it would not attract as many viewers. So instead I titled it a statement I am refuting.

Depression does not only affect the person aflicted it affects everyone around them. My own experience with my wife was so hard to deal with. The whole time I felt guilty because I thought it was my fault. This went on for a decade untill she told me to leave and it was over. To this day I don't really know what happened to us. Living with guilt to this day I hope all people with this find a way to get better!
