Hi Piano and welcome to the forum!!
Depression *can* be more than state of mind. Some of us have a chemical imbalance which can require meds to help retain more of the chemicals which are low.
It is great that you are able to control your depression w/o meds. The way we look at life certainly does affect the way we enjoy or don't enjoy living (the half empty - half full thing).
glad you found us!!
