First of all, some definitions from some so-called reputable websites:
“Clinical depression is the more severe form of depression, also known as major depression or major depressive disorder. It isn’t the same as depression caused by a loss, such as the death of a loved one, or a medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder.”
“What Is Major or Clinical Depression? – Most people feel sad or low at some point in their lives. But clinical depression is marked by a depressed mood most of the day, sometimes particularly in the morning, and a loss of interest in normal activities and relationships — symptoms that are present every day for at least 2 weeks. “
Allows for a lot of opinion and personal judgement if you ask me. I know you would rather not ask me, but read a little further and find out how you are being duped. You are being duped by the medical profession by the way. I mean, fuck!, when my mum died, I was screwed up for months. I didn’t need fucking drugs. Would have made it worse. I’d go for a walk or talk to a Chaplain or something. (He listen or just chat with me until I felt better – didn’t get into this bullshit of ‘how does that make you feel?’ crap.)
I got over it. I still lived life. I bore down and still worked, took care of my kids etc. You do what you gotta do. I see people take drugs in this situation and I wouldn’t have them anywhere near a work environment! They are so messed up. Should be drug tests for that.
The next load of crap is from: http://www.healthline.com/health/clinical-depression#Overview1
This is the most fucking illogical paragraph I’ve ever read:
“The exact cause of MDD isn’t known. However, there are several factors that can increase the risk of developing the condition. A combination of genes and stress can affect brain chemistry and reduce the ability to maintain mood stability. Changes in the balance of hormones might also contribute to the development of MDD. “
Take the first sentence: “The exact cause of MDD[Major Depressive Disorder] isn’t known.” OK, so that’s good. You don’t know what causes it then you would think to do more research to find causes. (But that doesn’t sell drugs!) The rest of the paragraph is really gobbledygook[sillyness] based on that first statement. If my chiropractor does not know exactly what is causing my shoulder hurting and sends me to a deep tissue when I have a torn rotator cuff, it is going to do more harm than good.
How would you know what genes and stress will do if you don’t know the cause? Huh?!? And ‘brain chemistry!’ – there have never, ever been any tests to show that brain chemistry has anything to do with ANY mental problems. Really, it may or may not be so, but no one has developed a test to show it one way or the other! Of course, the pharmaceutical industry comes out with this statement ever so often: ‘Science is on the verge of discovering brain chemistry causes of mental illness.’ Makes them sound all officious and scientific. Trying to give the idea of ‘chemical imbalance’ some kind of credibility. What a bunch of horse shit!
This is all about the equivalent of saying: A equals B and C equals D therefore A equals D. It does not compute!
Great article here by Kas Thomas on the Chemical Imbalance Myth
There are lots more studies exposing this freakin’ lie, if you care to do your own research.
So, let’s recap: start with the unbelievably vague statement of what Clinical Depression is and then you find out that no one has a fucking clue as to the cause of depression to lining Big Pharma’s pockets for some fabricated jump in logic.
I hope some shit rains down hard on those guys. And YOU, y’all should be ashamed for not thinking, not doing your own research. Well, if you are reading this far then maybe you aren’t doing so bad after all.
If you or someone you love is already on one of these nasty drugs, keep checking and I’ll try and list some places on this site where you go to find out how to ween off properly. Stopping cold turkey can be dangerous.
Emotions are not bad things.
