Do I experience Existential Depression?

shawna asked: Do you ever encounter existential depression? Also, your website is coherent and interesting.

I won’t get into the details, but for the duration of my childhood/youth I experienced a series of very traumatic experiences (some of which were acute and others that were chronic long-term situations). Long story short, I had developed existential depression by the time I was 4 or 5 years old, followed by PTSD as a teenager (which I am still dealing with today).

Your inquiry, phrased as is, was a “yes or no” question, and I believe I have now answered it. Unless of course, there were connotations in your words that did not come across in my interpretation of them.

If you’re further interested in my commentary concerning existential depression/disillusionment in INTJs, I do have a post specifically related to how INTJs cope with trauma.
