Humans should be allowed to go walkabout from their jobs, families etc once in a while. Depression can be self-repairing in natural surrounds. You withdraw, pull cones, shut yourself off from all stimuli. Eventually you get bored and put some music on and call someone. But if this natural self-repair process is disrupted by outside pressures you keep functioning by external measures but your body and mind sustain permanent injuries. If the injuries pile up you can end up breaking down.
