I'm sick of people not understanding what it means to be depressed??? Seems like most people think they're depressed after feeling sad for a day.

All the tumblrfuckery that happens with idiots self-diagnosing themselves with depression just to be "edgy" makes depression look like a joke and causes people with actual depression to not be taken seriously.

Exactly.

I suffer from depression and people treat it as a joke.

I do as well, and like it is awful, and really boils my blood to see so many people faking it to get attention.

But it's good to know others share the opinion that it's wrong.

I think that's just an uninformed person using the term incorrectly ( or an attention seeker )

self diagnosis for depression if you are well informed about it should be fine, especially if you don't have access to a psychiatrist / psychologist

I suppose so, but I'm talking about the people who think depression, the mental disability, is just being sad alot.
