Uuuum make you think doesnt it, a bad cold is a state of mind or that is illness, make one think doesnt it ?

Best Answer

A bad cold is caused by an infection, it's not a state of mind. If someone were to put the right chemicals into your food, you would be so depressed you couldn't function or think straight. If those same chemicals were occurring because of an imbalance in your system, that's not just a state of mind - that's an illness.

If it's a state of mind, it's probably melancholia rather than depression. I'd say they're different. A clinically depressed person can't feel happiness. A melancholic person just thinks too much :)

Anyone can be depressed. Technically that's depression. But other forms of depression, such as post natal depression, chronic depression, etc, can be caused by chemical imbalances, deep traumas or other factors. They aren't a bad day - they are a living hell that never stops.

It depends. But everyone suffers from depression; usually something or someone triggers the depression and some people can't cope with the pain so they resort to medication. It's a tough world out there.
