    Have you ever felt depressed?

    sure...i think its sometimes necessary to feel this way. i dont know if i would call it depression for myself; to me, its a clinical term that requires professional attention. but feeling blue or sad every now and then, yes indeed. in fact, your post is quite timely, spratt. ...ive been feeling...
