In brief: Real Disorder

Major depressive disorder is a real disorder that effects all aspects of one's life.
It's more than the blues , or being down, or negative. It's a serious condition that is biological , psychological, social and spiritual. Depending on severity it changes you to a point where all of life is a struggle. It is difficult to put in words unless you've experienced how incapacitated and overwhelmed
