Just to clarify, I do not have depression, about a year ago I thought I had depression. I could not stand going to school, and felt like everyone looked down on me and treated me like garbage. I could not carryon a full conversation with anyone in my family, and found myself withdrawing from social activities becouse of my lack of self esteem.
You were not clinically depressed, you were just down in the dumps, so to speak. People that are clinically depressed aren't sad or discouraged, they have no control over how they feel and there usually is no direct cause of the depression (death of a loved one, loss of a job etc...). People cannot cure clinical depression by thinking happy thoughts.
