I have a hard time classifying depression in the mental disease category. Look up the definition for disease Nick. Chemical imbalances play a role in depression, lack of sleep, serotonin imbalances, and chronic pain. All of these things and maybe some I'm missing are all a nice little ingredient that could bring on depression. The idea that depression is a mental disease is an outdated perception.

When I have a pain free hour, or even a day I am abnormally euphoric. I'm so happy they took my picture and posted it over those silly happy face posters. Have A Good Day
