Dear, Yes. Depressive disorder is a chronic neuro chemical disorder and it needs life long treatment. The symptoms of depression do occur periodically. The intensity of the symptom may vary. If you tak proper treatment the intensity of symptoms can be reduced and you will be able to manage it properly. Management is equivalent to cure.
