What makes you think "simple" depression is curable, and a more pleasant diagnosis? I've been depressed since I was a small child. I've spent 6 years in therapy. I've tried about 19 different drugs. Depression has crippled my life.I'm in my 60s and I'm still depressed. You need to think about why you're spending so much time in therapy disputing your "diagnosis" (in my mind that's a huge signal that you're distracting yourself from working on what's really going on), and start facing up. No so-called diagnosis is better or worse than another. You don't think depression affects your "personality"? You don't think depression affects every aspect of your life? Stop focusing on labels. Do yourself a favor and give yourself a break and start focusing on receiving the help that's offered, and the help that seems to me (based on your writings) to be sincere , caring, and knowledgeable.
Best of luck.
