    Real depression is pretty serious. Teenage angst inspired 'depression,' just p***es me off.

    Really though, define the difference. Lots of things can trigger depression in those inclined towards it, and sometimes its things that, for the right age group at least, might be dismissed as "teenage angst".

    Therein lies the problem.. There are few objective measures with peoples minds. This one's going to go over the top. Soon, everyone having a bad day will use the "depression card", which I'm sure the pharmaceutical companies will use to their advantage.

    Strikes me as ridiculous what people do when they get the beginnings of a cold. Immediately see their doctor who prescribe anti-biotics.

    Can't wait til everyone going through puberty or any changes in their life will have "depression". No doubt it'll also be glorified by celebrities.

    Yeah, good point, didn't think of that.
    I guess it can be a bit hard to tell, but more often than not when a teenager is in their room listening to Marilyn Manson or whatever, it's because they're a) spoilt, b) seeking attention or c) unable to handle their emotions, and only the last one has much to do with depression.

    Either that or they like Marilyn Manson.

    Seriously, I think the "spoilt attention-seeker" thing is overblown really. If anything, if someone is so desperate for attention from the outside world that theyturn to acting out in a self-destructive way, that really is a sign of depression. It is worth remembering that there's a significant difference between going through a phase in your life where you are often depressed and suffering from long-term depression as a medical condition, but both are pretty serious things and sitting around and saying "well, that person is just seeking attention" doesn't really help when they wind up doing something stupid, getting expelled from school, committing suicide or whatever else.

    It's especially problematic when it becomes a general common attitude that teenagers who behave in certain ways are just being spoilt attention seeking brats, as if there actually is something serious going wrong it could well end up being ignored by those who could do something about it (friends, family, teachers etc).

    Isn't 'real depression' a result of chemical imbalances?

    Whereas teen angst is the result of, the most trivial things?

    Some forms of depression can be caused by actual physical problems yes, but if you've say been sexually abused by your parents from the age of 3 and are a complete emotional mess you don't necessarily have a chemical imbalance or anything of the sort, but you might still suffer from any number of emotional and mental disorders.

    Anyway, it's not like they determine whether or not someone suffers from depression by testing their hormone levels or anything.

    There have been times in my life where I have felt pretty down when people have knocked me back for jobs and think a lot less about me, then I have been able to tell myself to pull myself together and fire myself up and get angry and go on a "I'll show them" sort of attitude. At least 90% of the time I do.

    Probably the reason why I seem to get angry so easily and fired up pretty easy as well.

    But with this thread depression is a terrible thing and one of the best ways is to talk about it.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
