So I've been thinking in the past couple of days about the idea of "retail therapy" being used to combat depression, and especially about the way this is portrayed in the media and on TV. Do you think that there's any truth in the idea of retail therapy? Would it be more effective for those without depression or with?
Also, do you think those who have depression are more susceptible to influence from advertisers? Do you think it is a form of exploitation if those with depression are specifically targeted? I'm going to research this tomorrow but I was wondering if you guys had any idea.
