Well, as others have said, it's possible to be depressed without being clinically depressed but I get what you mean. It's kind of like when people say FML for the most stupid things. "I missed the bus. FML." Yeah, I'm sure your life is totally **** now; way more than, say, the life of a person who just got diagnosed with malignant cancer. Ugh, people need to stop trying make their lives so melodramatic.

Yeah.
I have to agree with everyone who pointed out that "depression" is, in fact, both an emotional state of being and a disease. Some people do tend to abuse the term for over-dramatization, but a good deal of the people mentioned on this comment thread sound a lot like teenagers. I don't know about the rest of you, but most teenagers I know (myself included) have a penchant for drama. So them abusing a term? Yeah, I get that you're annoyed that they're misusing the term for the emotional state, but they're probably not saying that they're clinically depressed. Where did you think that name came from? -.-''
And I sympathize with the depressed people on their issues, so don't get me wrong... but don't act just as ignorant as the people you accuse if you're going to make a point.

right ! like... i understand people have problems and we don't know everything that goes on, but when you see someone complaining about the stupidest things when you know other people (maybe not just you) have worse, but you don't want to say anything because you don't want to be rude :o

I think the OP is referring to people that are overly dramatic and like to say they are depressed just for attention

yeah thats what i was referring to... not saying if you dont have it you dont know what it is but its annoying to hear people compllain when they (the over dramatic people) probably dont understand the actual effects of the disease. sorry for any confusion..
