I recently had this discussion with two friends. One has never had a hard time period in his life, let alone depression; the other has a sister with depression, but has only had the occasional bad day. They both said that a person without depression is not spoiled. I disagreed. I've been suicidal since 5 years old and was diagnosed as "Abnormal Manic Depressive with Paranoid Schizophrenia.". So to me, those who haven't experienced true depression are spoiled. What are your thoughts?
