I've heard this many times before, but they say if you're not depressed or depression is controlled, the external environment won't affect how you feel. I disagree. To me, where I live and work affects 60-70% of how depressed I am on the daily basis. For example, I endure daily commute from a relatively nice mountainy remote location to my work passing hispanic settlement district of downtown LA. The moment I get on those streets, I am repulsed with the sight of dirty unsupervised kids flooding the streets and crowds of people whose incomes won't let them live in more spacious, cleaner areas. Seeing that makes me feel depressed every time. I'm looking forward to the time when I won't need to pass the area because we're relocating and my commute route will change dramatically. Also, I always feel better out in the desert, away from the city hustle and bustle, where the skies are clearer and the pace of life is different.

Then when I react he blames me. I feel like rubbish questioning...
