No to some depression is a real and life changing thing to others it's nothing more than a delusion.

depression is a response.

if you're depressed after your dog dies, that's normal and appropriate. if you're depressed because your gilligan's island re-run got preempted, yeah, I suppose that's a problem.

Some people spin so deeply it's hard for them to even leave the house.

"Is depression a disease?" is a question only those who've never experienced clinical depression can ask.

Hell yes it is.

fever is a response, not a disease.

Whatever produces a fever is a response too, if you want to pick nits.

Your immune system hiccuped, in response opportunistic pathogens multiplied, and you got a fever.

a fever is the body fighting an infection, sometimes a fever can get out of control, but most times the fever kills the infection before it kills you.

if your dog (or someone you love) dies you're supposed to feel bad. the disease would be if you didn't.
