I do not know if it is the common term but he didn’t just make it
Yeah, I did later find a mental-health clinic using it [link]. Said clinic’s stance is that depression *is* much more common than it used to be, but that this is because of the stress of a rapidly changing society.
ok I haven’t done a representative survey or anything but at least some people claim utsu(byou) is normal. so at least the more outlandish versions of the claim are overblown
I noticed that too. “Replaced” seems a bit much, though calling it that would be understandable if (if) it’s true that they caused the *meaning* of utsubyō to be much broader than it was before.
Also, re: k-kaze.jp:
>>Day care specializing in reinstatement support for those who are on leave or on leave to treat depression or depression.
oh great, this is gonna be one of *those* translations [link]
