"In Blood Brothers, this gets slightly twisted: Mickey wants to stay on his medication for chronic depression, but his wife and mother both pressure him to quit. His wife specifically tells him that she's depressed a lot, but doesn't need any pills to get over it!" Is there a 'You Fail Psychology Forever' trope? Being clinically depressed is not the same as feeling sad, particularly when the depression is caused by the chemicals in the brain being imbalanced rather then outside factors.
