Because most folks get depressed from time to time, there is that endless question if depression is indeed a illness. The answer is: yes. The clinical one, that is. It has been stated that about 1 out of eight United States residents will possibly become clinically depressed. Some experience it once in a lifetime, while others may have multiple episodes.

This is a fact: when a person gets depressed for the first time, there is a 55 percent chance that this individual will fall to the same predicament over again. And come the 2nd time, you will find the threat that he will go to a third depressing episode.

Depression is a genuine illness as it involves the mental, psychological and even physical performance of the person. That is not just a transient sad feeling that will go away when one wills it to. There are symptoms and signs as well as corresponding treatment. If not handled properly and immediately, it may increase to worse conditions. Like any other illness, major depression has also variations.

There are three types of manic disorders: major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and dysthymic disorder.

Major depression is a culmination of all the symptoms and signs that get involved with one’s capacity to act normally. It may happen once, but continious episodes are possible.

Its less severe counterpart is dysthymia which is characterized by the same symptoms of major depression, only they don’t totally affect one’s activities. A person who has dysthymic disorder can suffer major major depression sometime during his life.

Bipolar disorder is also a kind of major depression that involves drastic feeling changes, from being very high about a minute to significantly depressed the next. The manic cycle may make the individual hyper and overenthusiastic but it changes as soon as the depressed cycle hits. The depressed cycle has all the symptoms of depression.

Because depression is an illness, there are symptoms. Again, they are the following:

1. Persistent “empty” feeling

2. Unbelievable hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and hopeless most the time

4. Absence or loss of interests in activities that used to bring joy to the person and this includes sex.

5. Visible fatigue

6. Has a difficult time {making|taking decisions

7. Development of rest problems

8. Loss of appetite and drastic weight change or reduction

9. Suicidal attempts plus thoughts.

10. Pronounced irritability

11. Physical aches and discomfort that contain no physiological basis

Fortunately at the end of this dark tunnel called depression, there is hope. Treatment is available in 3 types: hypnosis, antidepressant medicine and the combination of both. At this time there are also times when electroconvulsive remedy (ECT) and light remedy are use.
