To paraphrase Robert Sapolsky, the thing that people don't understand about depression is that it's every bit as much a biological disorder as, say, juvenile diabetes.... but you wouldn't sit down a diabetic and tell them, "Oh come on, what's with this insulin stuff? Stop babying yourself, pull it together," would you?
And that's what those who suffer from depression have to deal with on a daily basis, on top of the uncontrollable, reasonless grief, guilt and even delusion that comes with depression in the first place.
