I have chronic depression. I have probably had it most of my life. It wasn’t treated until about ten years ago!
What a change a treatment has made!
After all those years, I have a vibrant and rich life. It is not all roses and cherries, but it is like a heavy gray veil was lifted from my mind! I did not know that I could see things so much more clearly, feel them so deeply, be so much more in control of my life, but wow, it happened.
So yes, I have it and yes mine is treatable.
