Depression how do you feel when you are depressed?
Do you cry all the time when you are?
What happens when you have no more tears to cry?
Then are you not depressed if you don't cry?

Then feeling gloomy... does that equal depression?
I Smile,
I have happy moments.
I can love.
I am gloomy but it doesn't consume me.

Well people say to me.....
"You are fat no wonder you are depressed. I would be too."
**Just because I am fat doesn't automatically mean I am depressed.**
"Look what happen to you. I would be depressed."
**Yes, it happened. but I have healed as much as I can,**
"You husband is an addict. I sure would be depressed too."
**It is going to be ok. granted it hurts. but I will survive.**

This is my life. It is life.
Life isn't all roses all the time.
I want you to understand....
I am NOT depressed. please stop telling me that I am.

There is a difference.

    It is understandable that you are angry. Who would not among other feelings!
    I am glad you have happy moments and gloominess does not consume you. You are going to make it through this someway, somehow. Best wishes.

    I dated an addict for three years, and spent most of the time angry AND depressed. Angry at him because he chose drugs over me.....Depressed, because I could not change him.
    At least anger is a motivator. Depression is not.
    You are a strong person and you know the difference.....who cares if others don't. They're not worth your time and effort. YOU take care of YOU. You're strong and motivated ~ You can accomplish anything.

    Yes, I agree as well there is a big difference. I had an addict for a boyfriend and I was angry because I was hurt, and hurt because he put his desires for dope before anybody else. It p@++@d me off!! Plus, he was very abusive and brought out the worst in me! I felt wrathful inside! I was glad I didn't have a child with him or married to him. I met a man who was the opposite of him and he led me to Christ, and now I am not angry anymore. I praise God for that peace I feel now, as I was still angry way after I left him. The scars from abuse were still there. I really feel for you!!
