    1. This
      you guys seem very self conscious and your focus in life seem somewhere else. Other people shouldn't change who you are.

  3. Wait wait, I thought clinical depression is caused by chemical imbalances, hence why it's treated as an illness. You just sound sad.

    2. It's a very reductive and ultimately inaccurate way to think of mental illness - the causes are more complicated than something that can be fixed with the right pill (or pills) to "balance you out."

      Make no mistake - antidepressants *can* help in certain circumstances, but they aren't a solution in themselves. Cognitive therapy, lifestyle changes, social interaction can all make different degrees of difference for different people.

      The truth is, there is no surefire solution to clinical depression - just a variety of techniques that may or may not help you. But you should always seek help, regardless.

    3. 4 here, I completely agree 4b. I was being facetious because I don't like the modern conflation of psychological issues with real disease and illness.

  4. First you gotta learn the name of the school you're attending. There ain't no place called "Waterloo University".
