Yep I think its chemical, BUT life triggers depression.
I get the feeling that a lot of depression issues happen cause we have skills in something but cannot use them. Maybe computers have killed it off or its outsourced.
I am watching the Michael Moseley DVD "The Story of Science: Power, Proof and Passion" along with his other DVD on the discovery of medicines.
In it, he goes on about the different inventors - some on the biggest breakthrus were non-professinal, non-tech people that found a pattern, or were obsessive about something untill they found the reason after 700 expriments etc etc.
The problem in todays age, is that computers have taken over a lot of the testing / experimentation where they test combinations of chemicals to see if one will cure a cancer for example.
There doesn't seem to be any jobs that have this sort of "hey join us and have a look around, see what you want to do"
It is now ALWAYS pigeonholed into "This job has THIS task and you need THIS qualificaton" and you only do that task cause the contract works that way. We really have become robots.
SO for the creative, chaotic people like me, I can't see any future for my design / pattern finding skills and this is one of the major triggers for my depression.
I'm in the wrong job but I can't see what job is right for me.
