from your OP, nah. i don't think you were in the wrong, but your friend probably had something going on that he just didn't want to talk about. sometimes people react poorly when they're in rough situations.

there are however people that state things "how they are" in a very rude manner.

Apparently you said something that offended him.

Sometimes when someone is suffering from depression they are also short tempered or more sensitive to criticism than usual.

The thing is, Katie, if you watch a good therapist in action they don't come right out and label their patients in such bold terms. There are ways of getting a point across that are far less direct and far more productive.

Don't give up your day job!
