Just for interest's sake, George, most doctors realize that a large percentage of medical problems are brought on mentally the patient himself (i.e., stress, anxiety, etc). Homosexuality is just the kind of thing that would bring on depression (not in every case, I'm sure) because of guilt associated with it. Just another thought to add to yours.

Depression isn't particularly "caused" by anything (although stress etc.
can trigger it).  It is a medical illness, and it's very simplistic to
suggest that depression could be the direct result of "deep love" or
homosexuality or anything much else.

Just thought that should be pointed out..
