It's awesome when a person with depression tells you that you don't have depression because you don't have the same symptoms as them :/

Yeah that's definitely not cool. I understand maybe not recognizing depression when the symptoms aren't what you experience (assuming the assuming party has depression as well), but when someone says "Yeah no I'm horribly depressed", telling them they aren't is harmful and not at all the right answer.

The human brain is complex and barely understood on a scientific level. Tell that person unless they have a degree in psychiatry to f*ck off.

I know, it sucks.  Everyone has different experiences and symptoms.

I have a friend who says they're depressed but I tell them they're not so they shout at me
