I am not sure I could have said it as bluntly as Henrietta did. But I have to admit, I agree with her. I "only" have depression too. But it affects me every day. And even when I feel it remit and I start to feel better, I am 'looking' over my shoulder wondering when (and NOT if) it is going to come back. So essence, even when I am so-called partly cured, I am thinking about it. You never really escape it.

I say all this so you don't think that you would be better off if you had chronic depression. Would you face different problems - yes. But they would be there, day-in, day-out. There is not a day that goes by that I don't struggle - in some way - with the depression.

Finally, I would agree that everyone has some personality dysfunction. But since my depression is so much more intense than any personality issue, I am labeled a depressive. But I try - not always successfully - to define myself beyond the depression. In your case, the personality traits are stronger. But it does not have to define you
