I've been depressed since 5th grade. I've honestly come to consider this as just being a personality trait of mine, what do you think? I'm cynical, but usually right.

That maybe for everyone depression isn't so much..a biological thing or environmental thing just.. a part of them? Any opinions are welcome, but please don't criticize/attack me personally, I really don't need that. Thanks in advance.
