I never thought I was depressed. I have learned that stress is a big factor. Not having the answers all the time. Not getting enough sleep is a major one as well. Your body has to rest or you will experience alot of problems you aren't aware of. Letting others upset me and not going with my gut feelings. Not getting out of the house and getting some sun and fresh air even in the winter.

i chain of events can cause depression. one bad thing happing after another and then something major that makes you break..some people can only take so much one their own. that was my downfall, luckily it wasn't something that was incurable. for me support of others who cared about me help me deal with things.

Yes, I agree, depression can be genetic. I think this is so in my case, combined with verbally and mentally abusive parents.

Well, there are alot of reasons. Don't want to state them all on here. But depression can be genetic, so that is one of my reasons. Also my parents got divorced, so that's another reason.
