Great Depression? Now there’s an oxymoron…

Depression and sadness are not the same thing. That’s a common misconception (and don’t get me started on disappointments). If there is a reason for your depression, then that’s probably not depression. That’s sadness. But if you’re sad all the time, then that may very well be depression. Drugs can treat depression, but they’re not advisable as a treatment for sadness, especially if they have names like ‘Mendocino Mangle’ or ‘Humboldt Happy’. That’s for treating something else. The best treatment for sadness is to make positive changes in your life. No, I’m not a doctor, and no, I don’t play one on TV, BUT… I’m writing this screenplay, you see, thinking Antonio Banderas for the aging Latino hottie doc…
