Is It Really Depression?

If something bad happens to you and you're sad and withdrawn, is it really depression? Isn't sad and withdrawn what you should normally be? It would be weird if you're were diagnosed with cancer and you suddenly burst out laughing.

People who are sad with good reason don't need a pronouncement of depression. What they need is a solution to their problems. If they're homeless, they need a home. If unemployed, they need a job. If heartbroken, they need a new heart.

I'm not depressed, I'm sad. There's a difference.
