I think people need to stop throwing the D word around so much (depressed/depression). When someone is having a bad day, instead of saying "I'm sad" they say "I'm depressed". I think that line of thinking is what leads us to the people who think it's something that can be fixed with "going out" or "snapping out of it" or whatever. Because people can't make the distinction between depressed mood and the illness of depression, I think they need to find a new word for the depressed mood.

My other favorite is when you're having a panic attack or are in a highly anxious state, and people tell me to "relax". Oh sure, I'm doing this all on purpose, because I enjoy being anxious and panicky. *sigh*
