I know I have clinical depression. I’ve seen the doctors. I’ve had the therapy and been prescribed the meds. And they often help. So I know my condition is real. But if I know my depression comes from some “chemical imbalance” in my brain or something, then I should also know that it’s not a “real emotion.” Shouldn’t I be able to shake it off, knowing that the feelings aren’t caused by real events or situations in my life? Why do they still feel real?
