In another post some lady is going on about how depression is a choice and everyone can just DECIDE to be chipper. What do you think about that?

 False. I have slipped in and out of depression and it's definitely NOT a choice! Who wants to be miserable??!

sounds like she's only experienced sadness. not depression.

though there's something to be said for behaving as though it's true until it is. fake it till you make it, in other words.

Sounds like something my therapist told me years ago. "If you fake it long enough it becomes true". One of those hypnotherapist types. It didn't work for me.

Some people can't help that they're stupid. Haha.

No really. She can't help it because she chooses not to.
