Since a lot of folks get stressed out from time to time, there is that eternal 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 of america residents will likely become clinically depressed. Several experience it once in a lifetime, while others may have multiple episodes.

This kind of is a fact: if a person gets depressed the first time, there is a 50 percent chance that this individual will fall to the same predicament over again. And come the 2nd time, there is the threat that this individual will go to a third depressing episode.

Manic depression is a real illness as it involves the mental, psychological and even physical faculties of the person. That is not simply a transitive sad feeling that will go away when one wants it to. There are symptoms and signs as well as corresponding treatment. If not handled properly and soon, it may escalate to worse conditions. Like any other illness, 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 symptoms and signs that intervene with one’s capacity to work normally. It can happen once, but continious episodes are possible.

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

Bipolar disorder is also a type of depressive disorder that involves drastic mood changes, from being very high about a minute to seriously depressed the next. The mania cycle could make the individual hyper and overenthusiastic but it transforms as soon as the stressed out cycle hits. The stressed out cycle encompasses all the symptoms of depression.

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

1. Continious “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. Visible 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 plus desires.

10. Pronounced irritability

11. Physical aches and discomfort that 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 3 types: psychotherapy, antidepressant medicine and the combo of both. At this time there are also times when electroconvulsive remedy (ECT) and light therapy are use.
