Perhaps, but I have everything I could possibly need to live comfortably, so what's missing?
Depression isn't about having your needs met. If that is what it is then it's about the physiology and biochemistry of your brain. If every single day you are just going through the motions of life and waiting for it to hurry up end...that's concerning.

Or maybe you just need a hobby? If you're in a stable position maybe you need some spice in your life -- if you have the means you could change your job to something more inspiring or philanthropic? Or it could be as simple as adding a morning run to get the endorphins going. Or manufacture a better purpose.
No, it has to be clinical depression.
It must be, if an expert psychiatrist like you can diagnose it based on a few sentences from someone you've never met! Lord, I hope no one ever takes you seriously.
