Since most people get depressed from time to time, there is that endless question if depression is indeed a illness. The answer is: yes. The deadly one, that is. It has been said that about one out of eight United States residents will likely become clinically depressed. A few experience it once in a lifetime, while others can have multiple episodes.

This is a fact: if the person gets depressed for the first time, there is a 40 percent chance that this individual will fall to the same predicament over again. And come the second time, you have 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 function of the person. This is not simply a transitive sad feeling that will go away when one wills it to. You will find symptoms and signs as well as corresponding treatment. If not handled properly and soon, it may grow to worse conditions. Similar to other illness, depressive disorder in addition has variations.

There are three types of depressive 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 could happen once, but recurring episodes are a possibility.

Its less severe friend is dysthymia that is characterized by similar symptoms of serious depression, only they don’t totally hinder one’s activities. A person who has dysthymic disorder may suffer major major depression sometime during his life.

Bipolar disorder is also a kind of depression that involves drastic feeling changes, from being very high one minute to seriously depressed the next. The mania cycle can 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.

Mainly because depression is an illness, there are symptoms. Again, they are the next:

1. Continious “empty” feeling

2. Unbelievable hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and worthless most the time

4. Lack or loss of pursuits in activities that used to bring joy to the individual 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 weight change or loss

9. Suicidal attempts and thoughts.

10. Pronounced frustration

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

The good thing is at the end of this dark canal called depression, there is hope. Treatment is available in 3 types: psychiatric therapy, antidepressant medicine and the blend of the 2. Right now there are also times when electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and light remedy are employed.
