I don't know, I think if you're depressed, you spend so much time trying to "claw" your way out of it, and feeling guilty about what you're doing to others that it's not really selfish, at least not like most ppl think of selfishness. On the other hand, feeling sorry for ourselves can be selfish, if there's no reason. I would guess most ppl who are depressed would really rather not feel that way, you know? I know when I was, I sure didn't want to be! But I was, so what could I do?

My last T was CBT, and he was convinced that if you just "put yourself out there", had a good diet, exercised, and gave something back through volunteering, you'd feel much better. I think those are great ideas, but a pretty simplistic view of depression. Oh well........
