> I meant that I seem to have all the classic symptoms of "atypical depression" -hypersomnia, strong cravings for sugary foods, etc.

Doesn't it sometimes seem as if the atypical is actually quite typical?

It's funny, but I have not yet come across any literature that presents statistics comparing the occurrences of "typical" versus "atypical" depression. Also, bipolar depression typically appears atypical. Very shortly, I imagine the atypical neuroleptics will typically be the first choice of your typical psychiatrist.

That's typical.

P.S. I really would like to know the statistics regarding the various presentations of unipolar depression. Does anyone know what they are?
