do you think it is common sense to know that depressed means in a state of unhappiness?
I said "feeling depressed" not "depression"

Depression DOES NOT mean a state of unhappiness.
There is basically two forms.
This is induced by the environment, be it by psychological, physiological or chemical.
This form is more usually genetically
Where the confusion often lay is that a person with depression feels unhappy.

No, it is far from common sense. The two things are very different. You do not know what you are talking about.

I'm not sure why you're asking this. Depression comes from a chemical imbalance in the brain- the lack of production of serotonin. While depression usually causes people to feel unhappiness, a state of unhappiness does not always correlate with depression. People can be unhappy about something in their lives without being clinically depressed. The main difference is that unhappiness is temporary, and recedes when things get better, or as the person heals from a hurt. Depression is long-lasting and remains even when good things happen to the person. Depression is often treatable with medication. Unhappiness isn't.
