Because a lot of folks get stressed out from time to time, there is that everlasting question if depression is indeed a illness. The answer is: yes. The clinical one, that is. It has been said that about 1 out of 8 United states of america residents will likely become clinically depressed. Several experience it once in a lifetime, while others may have lots episodes.

This is a fact: if a person gets depressed the first time, there is a 40 percent chance that he will fall to the same predicament again. And come the 2nd time, you will find the threat that he will go into a third manic depression episode.

Manic depression is a genuine illness as it involves the mental, psychological and even physical function of the person. That is not just a transient sad feeling that will go away when one wants it to. You will find symptoms and signs as well as corresponding treatment. If not handled nicely and immediately, it may grow to worse conditions. Like any other illness, depressive disorder 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 of the symptoms and signs that intervene with one’s power to work normally. It may happen once, but continious episodes are possible.

Its less severe counterpart is dysthymia that is characterized by similar symptoms of serious depression, only they don’t totally interfere with one’s activities. A person who has dysthymic disorder can suffer major depression sometime during his lifetime.

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

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

1. Continious “empty” feeling

2. Serious hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and hopeless most the time

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

5. Dominant fatigue

6. Has a difficult time {making|taking decisions

7. Development of sleeping problems

8. Loss of appetite and drastic body change or loss

9. Suicidal attempts and thoughts.

10. Pronounced irritability

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 great hope. Treatment is available in three types: psychotherapy, antidepressant medicine and the combo of the two. At this time there are also times when electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and light remedy are use.
