@Spoofer said in Depression, a current state or a long time/permanent disorder?: do you consider that any person who suffers from depression could get over in the most favorable conditions? I think so, or so I wanna believe. When I'm at my lowest I try to think to myself like this - you are the only one doing this to yourself, no one but yourself can help you climb out of the hole and in all honesty, friends, family and your significant other can support you but the healing and the "saving" is all your own job, so ultimately everyone can get out of it if they find their way back up!
