I don't think anyone here was diagnosing anyone else, just sharing their own experiences. And experiences can be very different.

I agree with you about diagnoses. My discussion with my therapist was purely hypothetical. He doesn't have the need to write down my diagnosis. And my pdoc sticks to anxiety disorders, which is all he really knows about anyway. What's the point of telling a pdoc something nonmedication related?

My therapist has some experience in the field, but doesn't have preconceived notions or dogmatic beliefs. That's what I like about him. He accepts my experience as it is, and doesn't infer from it or insist that it fit a mold.

It would be impossible to diagnose anyone over the internet. It must be hard enough in person, especially given the narrow categories provided by the DSM. I doubt there's even one "depression" really.
