I have had depresion since childhood so you would think that I would be used to it but after reading your post and thinking about it, I realize that I really do hate this disease. I am an unstable bipolar and as a result, I am on disablity - this means that I now get 2/3 of my salary from the insurance company and no longer have my job (I worked for the company for 20 yrs). All because of this disease. I hate this disease and I hate the title disabled.
I do have to say that it isn't the disease itself that I hate, but the effect that it has on my life. Except for the manic state, then I really like having this disease.
