How do I tell the fakers from the chemically unbalanced?
Depression. Some people milk it for attention, to feel sorry for themselves so others will sympathize and pay attention to them. Others actually have something wrong in their brain that is causing them to feel helplessly sad. How do I know who is who? I can’t go around assuming everyone is a drama queen, but I can’t go around believing everyones sob story.
