I had coffee with my Mum, and we talked abut stuff. She offered the opinion that whatever caused the depression is appearing now.
She does not really know. I can tell she is just trying to help.
But there is the possibility that she is right.
It was a guess, but it would explain why certain things have happened.
Strictly speaking, I am not depressed anymore.
Strictly speaking, I do not have mental illness.
However, I have had problems since I broke out of depression.
What if psychiatric illness is a cloak for something else?
That people who have depression, an eating disorder, are burying other issues?
I do not know.
