Look at it this way. You will always feel something so supposing the absence of depression makes room for the presence of good feelings, maybe even happy ones. I think I'd work pretty hard to rid myself of the negative depression and make room for the positive. I have lived with depression since I was a child. It would come and go and when I grew up, I searched out a therapist. That didn't mean I was never depressed again but it becomes manageable. I always said I was born depressed. Maybe people can be. Did you ever feel that way?View Thread
