Apparently there is a rise
The fact of the matter is that people are believing they are depressed, and depression is misjudged. Many people have never faced anything negative in their lives, it's all been peaches and cream. So when they hit a snag, their whole life crumbles.
Like "Oh my god, the dishwasher's broken. How can we cope!".
I suppose what I'm trying to say is that bad times do make you appreciate the good times. I know that people say it over and over- but it's true. When you get over depression or your supposed depression, that feeling of the bricks lifted off your shoulders are amazing.
All those little pebbles falling from the sky- don't shake you. But then someone next to you, whose washing machine broke down yesterday, gets hit by a pebble and they fall.
