> It is a spectrum right? No ones illness is 100% biological or 100% psychological. We all are somewhere in between. For me I think psychology is more important. It took me a while to figure that out.

I strongly disagree with that. In my experience, "depression" can be everything from being depressed that your dog died was hit by a Good Humor truck to rapid-cycling bipolar disorder. And what about depressive reactions to drugs like clonidine. My mother, who had high blood pressure began treatmtent with clonidine. I don't think she had a depressed day in her life. Within a week of starting clonidine therapy, she became visibly slowed-down and depressed. She stopped reading and brushing her hair. I immediately recognized what was happening. It was a concern of mine from the beginning. We had her stop taking clonidine and she was better in 5 days.

So, yes, I do believe that people are located along a spectrum, including its poles.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
