theme, these thoughts occur on a bell curve with most people being in the meaty part of the
Those with major depressive disorder (major depression), however, often have very extreme
thoughts and their thought processes often exist on the very far ends of the bell curve. This can
make understanding how a person with major depression acts very challenging as these actions are
driven by thought processes the average person doesn't experience. While these thoughts may seem
“crazy” at first, it's important to realize that these thoughts are simply an extreme part of the
human experience that do fall along a continuum that is experienced by everyone.
Understanding these thought processes is the first step in understanding why a person with major

his or her own illness either from a personal or professional perspective. This knowledge will
breed a deeper understanding of the experience of this serious mental illness and increase
compassion towards those facing it.
