Never had depression then?
But I don't think depression is a catch all 'illness'. I was, quite clearly, mental at that point and needed locking up for the safety of myself and those around me just like all mental people.
As Opa says, I was a weak minded fool unable to cope with everyday life at that point. I can accept that diagnosis.
I got over it.
