Eeyore, the stuffed donkey friend of Winnie the Pooh, who happens to live in an area of the Hundred Acre wood marked "Eeyore's Gloomy Place: Rather Boggy and Sad", is known for his continually gloomy, downcast, and depressed demeanor. Eeyore's actions allow us to diagnose him with dysthymia. Dysthymia, sometimes referred to as mild, chronic depression, is less severe and has fewer symptoms than major depression. With dysthymia, depression symptoms can linger for a long period of time; this is conveyed by Eeyore who has always been depicted as sad and despondent. Symptoms of dysthymia that Eeyore displays is a prevailing sadness and depressed mood, low self esteem, feelings of hopelessness, a loss of enjoyment of things that should be pleasurable, and fatigue and loss of energy every day. While all of his contrarily hyperactive and happy-go-lucky friends embark on adventures, Eeyore begrudgingly tags along with a lack of interest. Eeyore often makes self-deprecating comments about his unimportance, frequently saying "Thanks for noticing me". Eeyore's hopeless outlook on life is depicted when Pooh said good morning to Eeyore, and he glumly responds by saying, "Good morning Pooh Bear. If it is a good morning, which I doubt".
