Hello and Welcome to HealingWell.
This condition, dystemis is not an actual depression but a general prolonged (often life long) condition of being sad. With dystemia your "basic mood" is at a lower level compared with most other people's mood and everything can seem hard and often joyless.
I have not known anyone with this but I will try to address your concerns tomorrow.
Want to welcome you tonight.
Hugs and hand on. We are here to help.
