I'm truly sorry about the other stuff. There is nothing in the world worse than chronic and persistant pain. I had it for a few years with an injured ankle - until I figure out that certain food made it worse. Then it disappeared.

With respect, I truly don't believe there is such a thing as clinical depression. There isn't one bit of scientific evidence that there's a chemical imbalance. In fact, all the research has indicated there isn't.

Because I'm had to work through trauma, I know just how much we can hide from ourselves in the unconscious brain. I truly believe that depression is nothing more than a chronic unhappiness, often caused by trauma or continual shitty life events.

So we're going to disagree on this.
