Need bacteria to need feel depressed

http://weblogsky.com/2007/04/depression_and_bacteria.html - We may be more depressed because we're too "clean."

Somewhat dovetails with that guy who said we depressions wasn't a real problem until the 1600s. Perhaps that's when hygiene started improving?

It doesn't dovetail, it says the same thing!

Depends on what you want to make of your life.

The only way to make something of my life is to read your posts?

To be honest, I just saw the subject line & said it was a repost. Then I had to cover by pretending I knew this was an addition to the previous thread. There's no need for you to get so snarky. Sheesh.

So now you are just covering using a different strategy. Perhaps less covering and being more real might help.

What different strategy? You were the one who started on the whole "make something of your life" line of argumentation. I completely fail to see how a "repost dildo" could cause you to call the meaning of my life into question.*



* What's fascinating is that we're arguing over nothing. There is no "thing" either of us could possibly win by continuing this argument.

If you "argue" to "win" no wonder you are so sensitive on the topic.

son of parnas = argumentum ad hominem.

I never knew this about you, I thought out of all the people on CoT, you would be able to argue merits and try to gain real insight and not just go for the easy insult.

I'd admitted a wrongdoing & given you a way out, but you keep on with the insults.

Well I guess you learn something every day. I'm sorely disappointed & I'll be sure to avoid this situation in the future, Ms Angry.

Probably not recognised until then.

Considering that before 1600 most poor people, who you'd think were most likely to be depressed, were totally illiterate, their depression may have existed but was not considered worth documenting by the literate upper classes.

Either that or their lives were so difficult that they had no time to be depressed.  Consider Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.  Psychic needs take a big back seat when you don't have enough to eat.

Meta studies of literature prior to modern psychology have been somewhat inconclusive, though I'd venture that there are plenty of examples of depression in literature & history. Hamlet springs to mind. Tristan, the knight who loses his love & wanders the world as a minstrel without his revealing his identity, and so on.
