I definitely agree with your sentiments (and feel your pain) about how difficult it is to deal with people not understanding your condition, in fact I've written quite a bit about that elsewhere on the site. I would, however, urge you not to give up hope. The biggest problem we have in terms of understanding mood disorders is penetrating the blood-brain barrier and measuring/seeing what goes on in the brain in general. All it takes is one breakthrough and a lot of these impediments to further research go away. It doesn't seem close, especially now with the cuts to fundamental research taking place all over the world, so for now we get to each figure out how to control our condition as best we can.

I have suffered from this condition all my adult life and I can testify that it is very difficult for people to understand you when there is no reason they can see for your depressive mood. It just creeps up on you and then you are in the middle of it again and you wait for it to be over and to have some respite for a short period then it is back again and you ask yourself did it actually go away at all.I dont think in my lifetime those of us who suffer from this condition will ever be fully understood or cured because there is no push within the medical profession to research this illness or to help the public to understand this illness.
