Is it possible to fully recover from a severe, long-lasting depression? "I get the sense that you think that one day she will no longer be depressed. If that is the case, I am sorry to tell you that she will always be a depressed person. She may be less depressed at points and more depressed at others, but if her depression is this severe and long lasting, it's here to stay."
Say it ain't so.

I want to know that it's possible to recover from a long-lasting, severe depression. I want to know there's more than "less depressed." I want your stories, and I want data.
Thanks for this.
