On labels...part the second

Well, that made no sense.

Restated, hopefully abbreviated:

How you define depression depends upon you.

You can see it as a label or as an adjective or noun that's used to describe yourself or anything else just like any other adjective or noun -- Pices, blonde, tall, chartreuse, furry, obnoxious, indigent, muscular, hungry.

I don't think there's a thing in this universe that can be described in just one word. I loathe labels. And maybe I'm being stubborn or overly optimistic (yikes! that's a scary thought), but even in darkest times I have not let depression define who I am. It may be a lot of WHAT I am at a particular point in time, but it will never be WHO I am.

Ok. Off the soapbox.
