There is no doubt that depression is over diagnosed. I was in a doctors office one day, and there was a list of seven or eight symptoms, and if you
had something like three, you were probably suffering from depression.
However, with that in mind, yes depression is real. So is bi-polar disorder. Just because things are over diagnosed, doesn't mean they don't
exist. I've suffered depression for years, and have other mental health issues that haven't been diagnosed, but I know that they're real.
