Depression is something that never goes away and will always be a part of you and your life. For me, days, months and years can go by without being in a severe state of depression but it's still there, always. You have to be so careful, so many things can trigger it. But a common misconception is that it can be beaten. To a point this is true, yes, you can go into a "remission" of sorts but it is not something that goes away. It is a life long struggle and one that needs to be recognised as exactly what it is.
