We often see people posting here stating that they suffer from depression either as a result of CH or concurrent with cycles.

I had always thought that "true" depression (meaning the disorder that can and needs to be treated, often called clinical depression) is NOT a temporary "down" or "blue" feeling stemming directly from a negative life event. In other words, if the depression disappears after the cycle, it isn't depression, but rather a depressed feeling, the blues, etc.

Can any experts confirm or straighten me out?
KTSSU - it helps fight the blues
