“Falling in love with depression.” ~ Doc Meek

Tuesday, January 25, 2011. Today I am grateful to know that depression can be treated by treating it as a learning disorder. So says my friend, who feels that depression is a learned behavior and can be chosen actively at will, albeit often  subconsciously. Same with addictions. Is depression an addiction?

What does depression feel like?

People view depression many different ways: http://www.healthexpertadvice.org/forum/Mental-Health/What-does-depression-feel-like-152591.htm

Letter from my friend: “Hi Collins,  Interesting approach to addictions.  Way back I remember finding that article called “You don’t have to be depressed it you don’t want to”.  I no longer have anything on it but when I just sit and read the Title there is a lot of food for thought there.   Also I once heard the line, “If you’re depressed perhaps that is the state you function best in.”  I guess some people are in a large comfort zone in depression because they really understand it and know where they are all the time. Maybe there is nothing wrong in living in a depressed state.”

In my previous posting, January 24, 2011, I quoted someone: “Depression is the natural result of unwanted circumstances.” If you missed that posting, simply click on this link:
