Is depression permanent?

@rollinsk That is a very good question. For many of us who live with depression, it sometimes seems so, doesn't it? I believe some people are more prone to depressive episodes, or have a tendency to slide into them. I am one of those. For me, it takes work, sometimes hard work, to stay positive, and rally against the depression, to return to the more positive approach of life. There can be so many triggers that would bring on a depressive episode, and we need to be self-aware of those; it's seems to be different for everyone.
Is it permanent? Well, my thought is it doesn't have to be first-and-foremost, at all times. We can work to keep it at bay, and congratulate ourselves when it happens.
Do you feel it is permanent for you?

My depression rolls in &out sometimes lasting for days & sometimes for just a few hours. I think it will be with me all of my life. I'm 67 now & my depression was a result of childhood onset anxiety. Drugs help & cannabis edibles in the evening are relaxing & ensure sleep.
