Since most folks get frustrated from time to time, there is that endless question if depression is a real illness. The answer is: yes. The clinical one, that is. It has been said that about one out of 8 United States residents will likely become clinically depressed. Several experience it once in a lifetime, while others may 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 again. And come the 2nd time, you have the threat that this individual will go into a third depressing episode.

Manic depression is a real illness as it involves the mental, emotional and even physical function of the person. It is not simply 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 soon, it may escalate to worse conditions. Similar to other illness, depression has also variations.

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

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

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

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

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

1. Persistent “empty” feeling

2. Serious hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and worthless most the time

4. Absence or loss of passions 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 body change or loss

9. Suicidal attempts and desires.

10. Pronounced frustration

11. Physical aches and pains that have no physiological basis

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