If depression/anxiety is a chemical imbalance, then why do some people overcome it?

    Just like someone else commented, you never overcome it. I have been diagnosed with severe depression and I’ve been suffering from anxiety for the past 3-4 years, and there are months when I feel great, but months later I start getting depression relapse. That’s how it is with a lot of people. But I don’t think you ever overcome it.

    It's not always a chemical imbalance. It absolutely can be. It is for me, but with the medication they give me, I''m able to work through most of it. With others, they may just have some difficult things they need to process through in their lives before they can move on.

    You never overcome depression, you can only manage it, like diabetes II. From severe lasting four to six month to minor lasting an hour or so.

    Source(s): Been suffering for 38 years.

      I'm sorry you've been suffering for so long, but your answer isn't true for all patients diagnosed with depression.

    Because the problem corrects itself or does so with the help of medication.

    That happens with other medical disorders.

    The balance can be manipulated/changed in many cases, by natural and/or chemical influences.
