I’m sorry you’ve had battles with depression. I’ve often considered myself lucky in that the most I would have is melancholy which I could call depression but wasn’t. Generalized anxiety though is my companion. Whether it be ADHD/OCD/ASD/anxiety, I don’t fully know. but it fascinates me that something so familiar to me can be so successfully modeled by Bayesian, which I always poo-poo because of its dependence upon priors (to which someone like me discounts if this is true!). In short, the very thing I thought was bunk can be filled with variables that successfully prove it to me by making itself disappear. [no belief in priors, only trusting errors = it appears that Bayesian doesn’t work]
