Re: Happy - are you?

Yes, namely that you’re not allowed to question anyone who claims that they suffer from depression.
Seriously? People do it all the time, usually those who have no clue about mental illnesses.


I am not a psychologist, but I have been treated (fairly successfully) for anxiety and depression, I‘ve studied and published on how mental illnesses are stigmatized.

I would never say „suffered from“ or „is a victim of“ any disease.

And, i‘m happy, too. I think happiness is largely the product of an internal frame. A lot of it has to do with autonomy, support and perception of the ability to cope.
