There is a medical condition called Clinical Depression.
There is also a state which I call Critical Stress, which the 21st century physicians called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Clinical Depression is probably (my view) a prolonged state of Critical Stress. It happens so often that a good General Practioner of Medicine is probably aware. Whether he/she can help you is a different matter.
As far as the Psi Cops (Conventional Psychiatry) is concerned that the idiots don't have a clue and will shrink your brain with drugs.
In Perseus terms, Critical Stress probably develops traits (morph-shift to other personality types) that you never knew existed, sometimes called the Shadow processes. In theory it is forced Personal Growth. In practice it is traumatic exhausting, detrmental to your health, causes distress, and tends to make people unhappy as they are acting out of character.
In the UK, it is Government military policy to induce distress in the dissenters, on in other words the Guards SJ will tend to persecute the NP Questors. Unless you have financial clout or political connections: these people are called Stakeholders. If you have chosen the wrong parents and you are poor, you might be an Outlaw.
Just remember your lines and don't bump into the furniture.
