Hi Crazy T, the definition of selfishness on dictionary.com is:
"stinginess resulting from a concern for your own welfare and a disregard of others"
I know when I was depressed I didn't choose to have disregard for others or choose stinginess. It would be my guess that's the real difference between selfish self absorbtion and depressed self absorbtion. If I'm selfish just because I don't have regard for others, I think I'm out there having a good time with my time and money, w/o regard for others, or the real priorities in my life. If I'm depressed and I'm self absorbed it's because I"m sad and feeling hopeless, maybe suicidal - not having a good time.
