oops, computer glitch...i'll send again

Never claimed to be an authority...but it is true that most depression is not based on a chemical imbalance that doctor can trace...therefore plenty of people dont consider it something that is a 'medical condition'...

that being said...i dont think that making lifestyle changes are easy, i have gone through the depression thing in the past myself and tried drugs...i personally hated taking them because, for me, it wasnt solving the problems, just making it hard to feel depressed. 

point being that if so many of us are discussing the merits of depression/causes/cures/method of dealing...if you use this in an app. essay-whats to stop the ad comm's from having the same discussion and coming up with an unfavorable answer...

what gives you the right to question his right to question her authority?

sarahz, are you a doctor?  If not, what makes you an authority on such matters?

And what gives you the authority to question her judgement? Are you a doctor?

There is still a lot of debate within the medical community as to what causes depression.  As to whether chemical imbalance causes depression or depression causes chemical imbalances or some combination of the two.

All they know for sure is that some depressed persons react well to some drugs and some react well to psychology and psychiatry and others to the combination.

Like anything to do with the brain, there is more we don't know than we do know.

But it is a disease, not a choice.

And whether you want to mention it to an add comm..... mention it if it shows you can overcome a adversity, otherwise, keep it to yourself.  BUT keep in mind that some on the add commm may hold the popular opinion that it is not a disease.

Hmmmmmmmmm.  sounds like you should leave it out of any personal statement.

Your statements had an obvious authoritative tone

but it is true that most depression is not based on a chemical imbalance that doctor can trace

do you have documentation to support this statement? Or should we accept it as true on the basis of your extensive knowledge in the medical field

...therefore plenty of people dont consider it something that is a 'medical condition'...

Go look online at any medical site, or speak to any doctor.  It is a widely held opinion that is easy to back up...since i dont really care if you believe me or not, it isnt worth the time to produce a bibliography for you.
