I think that your post makes perfect sense and I think that everyone here (including me) has that same question. I look at it this way... people have different strengths on how to handle things. I am a kind of person that takes a lot to heart, very sensitive. I have my good months and bad months but I know that the chemical imbalance causes me to relapse into depression while others can get through things without worry or sadness or anger.
I'd like to think that there is a cure out there for me or that one day it will just go away but I have come to the conclusion that at least for me that isn't true. So what do I do? I take what I get and make the most of the best. Believe it or not, thinking like that now gives me better days. I no longer feel hopeless about
my depression and in turn I have felt better more often.
I don't know if that was the answer you were looking for or hoping for but everyone is different and that basically describes me. I am so glad to hear that you have been feeling really better lately which is great to share because "happiness is contagious" :)
