Depression has probably been part of the human condition as long as man has inhabited the earth. Even a brief perusal of early manuscript or writing reveals descriptions of depression. Ancient writers recognized some of the same problems that we are treating 2,000 to 4,000 years later. Most Greek literature described the concept of divinely inspired depression. Yet 2,300 years ago, Hippocrates recognized that psychiatric problems originate from natural causes rather than from supernatural capriciousness. His terminology for the psychiatric disorders remain in use today: epipepsy (the sacred disease); mania (states of abnormal excitement); melancholia (states of abnormal depression due to black bile); and paranioa. Hippocrates also described a woman of melancholic turn of mind who suffered loss of sleep, aversion to food, thirst and nausea. This ancient catalogue of melancholic symptoms presages modren description of depression.

During the Roman Era, Physician Galen wrote about depresstion. In describing the melancholic state Galen commented that certain patients show fear, depression, discontent with life, and hatred for all people. He postulated that psychic functions were found in the brain, which was directly affected in melancholia. In his encyclopedic descriptions, Galen including dyshmia (ill temper) crasis (temperament), and chymos(humor).

Robert Burtonís "Anatomy of Melancholia", published in 1630, summarized what was known at that time as depression and categorized melancholy as "a disease of the head or mind" frequently associated with pain and sorrow. Burton paved the way of future scientific understanding of depression by cataloging the causes of depression, including such psychological ones as shame, disgrace, anger, self love and losses.

The next significant contribution to the description of depression was by Freud in his book, Mourning and Melancholia, published in 1917. Frued wrote that melancholia represented regression from object choice to a primitive mode of relating to objects. His description of "delusional depression " emphasizes self-reproaches replacing what should actually be outwardly directed anger. He believed that sufferers of depression torment themselves mercilessly while relating the torment to another person, such as the sexual object they may have lost. One can imagine now, what happened with our Mirza. If only Frued had the opportunity to study Mirza!

Depression has been described for thousand of years, first by the poet and philosphers and only later by the physicians. Today, we have entered an era in which the description of the disease are contributed by research oriented clinics and scientists.

You have read the above features of this disease. I request everybody in the right mind to consider the claims of inspiration, revelation and conversation with God of this Maseeh as ramblings of a deranged person and dissociate yourself from this melancholic, so-called, prophet, so that you can become a true Muslim and from the curse of faithlessness become a believer and a faithful follower of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Prophet (PBUH) said:

Now let us see what other intellectuals and Hakeems say about Melancholia.

Note: Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani was using Tonic wine and opium for the same reason.

(Guide to the Aetiology & Manifestaions of disease of Melancholia By Allama Burhanuddin Nafees) (Akseer-e-Azam Vol 1 p 188, By Mohammad Azam Khan) (By Dr. Shahanawaz Qadiani in Magazine Review of Religions, Qadiani Date, Aug. 1926 A.D.)

Tonic Wine:

(Letters of Imam to P.S. Collections of letters by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani to Hakeem Mohammad Hussain Qadiani, owner of Dispensary Rafiq-us-Sehat Lahore) (Sauda-e-Mirza p. 39 By Hakeem Mohammad Ali, Principal Tibbiya College Amratsar)

See how clear it is now that claims of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of being the Promised Messiah, Mahdi and Prophethood are symptoms of disease and not the result of inspirations or conversations with God. The problem was further compounded by the use of Opium and Tonic Wine. I pray that may God give guidance and understanding to Qadianis so that they follow the right path, otherwise the followers of a melancholiaic prophet will also be melancholics.
