Depression is not a real medical illness.

Fact

Clinical depression is a serious medical condition that affects not only an individual's mood and thoughts, but also the individual's body. Research has shown that depression has genetic and biological causes. Individuals coping with depression have a higher level of stress hormones present in their bodies, and the brain scans of depression patients show decreased activity in some areas of the brain.
