I don’t know very much about depression. Sure, there are days when I’m blue, some when I’m pissed at the world – watching the murder of 6 and 7 year olds will do that to you – and days when my wife is away and I’m lonely. But that’s not depression. What I do know is we cast a pretty wide net when we talk about it, and there are too many armchair psychologists around who are seldom right but never in doubt. Keep them at arm’s length.
