I have been around research clinicians and have conducted my own research long enough to know exactly how pervasive is the opinion that it is indeed worthy of a general statement. I don't expect everyone to agree nor find it a palatable opinion that affective disorders are progressive and perhaps even degenerative if left untreated. However, it is difficult to refute that the severity of early-onset depression increases with age if insufficiently treated.

I guess my statements are merely opinions of opinions. I do apologize that I reacted aggressively to one of your many attempts to discredit me. You have done much worse in the past, so I guess I should cut you some slack.
