Serious depressive illness runs in my family, so I take depression seriously. I've seen first hand how miraculous the prozac-class medications can be in basically curing depression and saving lives. But I had to laugh the other day when I heard the teaser for this ABCNews story calling for more depression diagnoses : the Good Morning America voiceover guy said ominously, "more than a million Americans are depressed and don't even know it!"

In my experience, if one is depressed to the point that medication may be appropriate, one is acutely aware of just how horrible he/she feels.
