Actually there are many different types of colour blindness, one of them being totally colour blind - Monochromacy (achromatopsia).

"Occasional Depression" is not the same thing as Clinical Depression.

No such thing as occasional depression. Depression is an imbalance that is permanent, it takes over your entire day(and life for that matter) and removes your ability to feel any sort of happiness, it unables you to laugh no matter what happens, it unables you to enjoy any part of your life.

If it is occasional it is sadness or bipolar disorder. A person that has never been depressed can also not understand the difference, it is like trying to imagine a colour you have not seen, but it is very real and measurable, and luckily treatable.
The problem is that most people that are diagnosed with depression is not actually depressed, the doctor can't send every sad patient to get their brain chemistry checked, so most of those who get medications against depression get so needlessly, luckly the medication has few drawbacks and is not permanent, which is why doctors tend to hand them out so freely.

Occasional depression is still depression, because you still have abnormally low serotonin, it's just onset by an event. Most of the time it isn't as bad, but it can be.

A physiological inability to produce normal amounts of neurohormones is not an 'emotion' because its cause is not psychological, emotions and arguably psychology is an emergent property of the interactions and regulation of neurohormone levels in the brain.
There is medication to normalise the levels of those neurohormones and allow for normal brain function and as such, prevent psychological orders from being expressed.

This is an idea born of ignorance.

If you get injured, and sustain trauma to your nerves, thus experience pain, nobody would complain if you took medications that alleviate the pain and to help your nerves to return to proper function. Especially if the pain was making it impossible for you to function normally. However depression is almost exactly the same thing (just different nerves, and different chemical processes).

The idea that we'd deny people medicine that can save their life, help alleviate their pain, and help them return to normal function because of some weird philosophy is absurd.

Sadness is NOT the same thing as depression, but ignoring the semantics, if a person's "sadness" causes them to experience long bought of pain, that may or may not resolve, if it makes them much more likely to commit suicide, if it prevents them from being able to get or keep a job, if it prevents them from keeping or making friends, if it keeps them from enjoying things they used to enjoy, then why the heck wouldn't we let them use a medication scientifically proven to help people in their situation?

INB4 "it's a crutch" or "it's putting a band aid on the problem. They actually help with the healing process, not prevent it, so that argument is stupid. They offer neuroprotection, and help your nerves return to a healthy state.

Sometimes, peoples' brains produce too much, or not enough, of one chemical, causing an imbalance. The imbalance can be corrected with these medications. Depression is a real thing. Imagine just being sad for years, with no real reason. Nothing happened to cause such sadness, you just are. And then you sit there for days trying to figure out why you feel so hopeless, what could possibly be the root of the problem, but you can't think of anything, and that makes you feel worse.
Or having something happen and you want to be happy, and you know you should be happy because it's a good thing that happened, but you just can't. You try and try, but the more you try, the more hopeless you feel.
You wake up in the morning, and you can't find a single reason to get out of bed. Food tastes bland and colors are dull.
All anyone ever says to you is "why are you so miserable, cheer up", or "You should smile more" and you hear these things and you want so badly to be able to just flip off the despair like a switch, but you can't, because your serotonin levels are too low, which is causing the imbalance.
Medication can raise the level of your serotonin your brain produces, making it possible to feel again.

Basically that sadness and depression and stuff like that are emotions and you can't take a pill to fix emotions.

Except that it's not nearly this simple. Depression is an illness of the whole mental (and sometimes physical) system, not caused by lack of just one neurotransmitter. The serotonin theory you explained has a major flaw: taking SSRI (depression meds) boosts your serotonin levels the same day, but the clinical effect occurs 2-6 weeks later.

One competing theory SSRI work because they boost your neuroadaptation, making it possible to fix those neuronic connections that have been pathological. We just don't know for sure yet.

I always thought of depression as a rich person disease.If you're sad you're sad but if you try to claim it as a legitimate disability just so you can collect cash on it so you don't have to work that's when I start to hate people. That or when you use it as an excuse just so you can get hopped up on medications.

And when you're Bi-Polar, your dopamine and seratonin levels can't regulate, so you go through massive mood swings.

Don't specifically ask for Zoloft though. You should ask to switch off welbutrin to something different. Keep an open mind as Zoloft may not be the right thing for your specific case.

Just sayin.
