This. If anything, being diagnosed with MDD is more of a motivator to get your shit together than anything. When you have undiagnosed MDD you don't want to be the muh depression guy and will more often than not just accept that you're a failure, especially if you have anhedonia and are chemically incapable of feeling rewarded from pursuing your interests.
When you have a diagnosis, it's easier to game yourself. You just operate opposite your intuition in some cases and learn to ignore those voices and gamble on letting people form their own opinion of you instead of just assuming you're best off hidden away and miserable.>T. MDD for years and got incredibly out of shapw, and down 20lbs form a spring diagnosis.
There's nothing wrong with being comfortable in your skin, obviously, but resisting the urge to let yourself go, even after you've locked down a partner, is one of the best long-term investments for your health you can manage. ESPECIALLY if you have a history with depression. It''s been studied that being overweight and having high body fat percentages causes hormonal imbalances that can exacerbate depression, and that triggers a bit of a downward spiral if you handle depression by stress eating shitty foods. Also, being overweight will worsen stuff like acne.
But that's obviously for the weight. If you've got a thing for hairy mommy wives then you do you, man.
