"I recently saw some video's and memes about how depression and mental illness is something that one can have a choice about. stars went off of prozac (which I take for depression) and decided that he was fine- which power to you dude- but suddenly people are saying that all it is is that people make it up and it's frustrating to explain to people that mental illness is real. Schizophrenia is real, depression is real, and it's just as real as any other illness. But then people will also claim that to make yourself not depressed that you need to go outdoors and that medicine is a load of crap. Sorry- a chemical imbalance isn't the same as feeling sad. there's a HUGE difference."
