The mania cycle may make the person hyper and overenthusiastic but it changes as soon as the stressed out cycle hits. The depressed cycle has all the symptoms of depression.

Since depression is a disease, there are symptoms. Again, they are the following:

1. Continious “empty” feeling

2. Unbelievable hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and worthless all the time

4. Shortage or loss of passions in activities that used to bring happiness to the patient and this includes sex.

5. Prominent fatigue

6. Has a difficult time {making|taking decisions

7. Development of rest problems

8. Loss of appetite and drastic body change or loss

9. Suicidal attempts plus desires.

10. Pronounced becoming easily irritated

11. Physical aches and pains which may have no physiological basis

The good news is at the end of this dark canal called depression, there is hope. Treatment is available in three types: hypnosis, antidepressant medicine and the combo of the 2. Right now there are also times when electroconvulsive remedy (ECT) and light remedy are use.
