Yes, yes, the curse of the "just snap out of it" most people that dont have depression go by. You will find that most people have no idea what it is like to deal with life and issues without the ability to control how our minds relate to things that other people take for granted.
Generally, if you have a least one close friend, take some quiet time and really express to them that you dont just snap out of it and that you wish they would try to educate themselves or even more listen to you and take what you say seriously. Most people have no idea the crushing effect depression is until they are curious about what you are really going through.
Remember, we are here, this has been a safe-haven for those times when noone understood or cared!!!!
