Dear unhappy gal,
Elsewhere in the Health24 site, you'll find a section which provides such basic information about a wide range of illnesses and disorders, including an effective section on Depression --- that will answer your question.
We all get "blue" at times. Depression is when we have the range of symptoms of depression, including depressed mood, most of the time, most of the days of the week.
Read through our section on Depression, and come back and post a fresh message if you have a queston left after reading that.
