He now lives in the south east corner of 100 Acre Woods "Eeyore's Gloomy Place", alone in an unstable house made of sticks, which often falls down

Christopher Robin also gave him a bad haircut which will never grow back

http://www.allgreatquotes.com/eeyore_quotes2.shtml Diagnostic Criteria for Dysthymic Disorder A. Depressed mood for most of the day, for more days than not, as indicated either by subjective account or observation by others, for at least 2 years. Note:In children and adolescents, mood can be irritable and duration must be at least 1 year. (ex. Eeyore came into existence in 1871, and has been in his state his whole life, 141 years)

B. Presence, while depressed, of two (or more) of the following:
(1) poor appetite or overeating
(2) Insomnia or Hypersomnia
(3) low energy or fatigue
(4) low self-esteem (ex. "Not much of a house. Just right for not much of a donkey.")
("Eeyore, the old grey Donkey, stood by the side of the stream, and looked at himself in the water."Pathetic," he said. "That's what it is. Pathetic."")
(5) poor concentration or difficulty making decisions
(6) feelings of hopelessness (ex. "End of the road... nothing to do... and no hope of things getting better. Sounds like Saturday night at my house.")

C. During the 2-year period (1 year for children or adolescents) of the disturbance, the person has never been without the symptoms in Criteria A and B for more than 2 months at a time. E. There has never been a Manic Episode, a Mixed Episode, or a Hypomanic Episode, and criteria have never been met for Cyclothymic Disorder.
(ex. Eeyore is not an emotional being and has no manic state of happiness, ruling out these disorders that include a manic phase)

F. The disturbance does not occur exclusively during the course of a chronic Psychotic Disorder, such as Schizophrenia or Delusional Disorder.

G. The symptoms are not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance(e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition (e.g., hypothyroidism).
(ex. because Eeyore is a stuffed animal in Christopher Robin's imagination, he does not have the option to substance abuse)

H. The symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
(social ex. ""Good morning, Eeyore," said Pooh.
"Good morning, Pooh Bear," said Eeyore gloomily. "If it is a good morning, which I doubt," said he.
"Why, what's the matter?"
"Nothing, Pooh Bear, nothing. We can't all, and some of us don't. That's all there is to it."
"Can't all what?" said Pooh, rubbing his nose.
"Gaiety. Song-and-dance. Here we go round the mulberry bush."") D. No Major Depressive Episode has been present during the first 2 years of the disturbance (1 year for children and adolescents); i.e., the disturbance is not better accounted for by chronic Major Depressive Disorder, or Major Depressive Disorder, In Partial Remission.

Note: There may have been a previous Major Depressive Episode provided there was a full remission (no significant signs or symptoms for 2 months) before development of the Dysthymic Disorder. In addition, after the initial 2 years (1 year in children or adolescents) of Dysthymic Disorder, there may be superimposed episodes of Major Depressive Disorder, in which case both diagnoses may be given when the criteria are met for a Major Depressive Episode. Dysthymic Disorder is labeled as a depressive mood disorder. Among other mood disorders are Bipolar disorders and manic episodes. Eeyore also shows some symptoms of catatonic schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder. He has none of these for these reasons bipolar disorder: people having bipolar disorder have periods of happiness and depression. But With Eeyore he is depressed for most of the time manic episodes: manic episodes include periods of time in which people feel extremely happy. Eeyore does not have periods of happiness, he is constantly gloomy catatonic schizophrenia: patients go from a coma like daze and then talk in a bizarre hyperactive. Where Eeyore is sometimes in a coma like daze he is not usually in hyperactive mood. dissociative disorder: a disorder when a disturbance occurs when the subject is younger that makes them want to hide or be afraid of their true identity. When this happens their brain switches and creates multiple personalities to hide the one they are so self-conscious about. Eeyore does not have this because you can tell he does not just switch his personality he is just always sad with the occasional happy. these observed behaviors lead to the diagnosis of depression -difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and remembering details.
