Can someone describe it to me? I know that there exist mild, moderate and severe depression. My shrink said only that i have depression and that it would be very smart to take pills. But i am only 17 and i dont think that i need them... I know that i dont have severe depression, because there comes periods every few days when i feel severely depressed for few hours, so i defenetly dont feel like it all the time. Can you describe me moderate and mild depression please? Thnx.
