Because a lot of people get stressed out from time to time, there is that everlasting question if depression is indeed a illness. The answer is: yes. The deadly one, that is. It has been said that about 1 out of eight United States residents will possibly become clinically depressed. Several experience it once in a lifetime, while others have multiple episodes.

This is a fact: when a person gets depressed the first time, there is a 55 percent chance that this individual will fall to the same predicament again. And come the second time, there is the threat that this individual will go into a third depressing episode.

Depression is a real illness as it involves the mental, emotional and even physical performance of the person. That is not just a transitive 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, depression has also variations.

There are 3 types of manic disorders: major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and dysthymic disorder.

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

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

Bipolar disorder is also a kind of major depression that involves drastic mood changes, from being very high about a minute to severely depressed another minute. The mania cycle may make the person hyper and overenthusiastic but it changes as soon as the frustrated cycle hits. The depressed cycle encompasses all the symptoms of depression.

Because depression is a health problem, there are symptoms. Again, they are the next:

1. Continious “empty” feeling

2. Unbelievable hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and worthless all the time

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

5. Dominant fatigue

6. Has a difficult time {making|taking decisions

7. Development of rest problems

8. Loss of appetite and drastic body change or reduction

9. Suicidal attempts and thoughts.

10. Pronounced frustration

11. Physical aches and discomfort that have no physiological basis

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