If repressed anger causes depression then those cultures which truly repress anger (poor Asian ones?) should have high rates of depression. IMO, our culture is saturated with anger, so if there is repression it has not been very effective.

OTOH, I think there is a connection between the two. Anger can offer a way out of depression, particularly if it is kept in proportion.

Mental illness is one of those beasts that changes its shape and will continue to do so. We don't hear much about hysteria these days. By the by, I found out that thing about 'the wandering womb' that some bright spark made up before we had the wonders of science to dazzle us. The reason the womb was wandering was because it was in search of semen, which is kind of obvious when you come to think of why it might have been up and about.
