Because a lot of people get stressed out from time to time, there is that eternal question if depression is a real illness. The answer is: yes. The clinical one, that is. It has been stated that about 1 out of eight United States residents will likely become clinically depressed. Some experience it once in a lifetime, while others may have lots episodes.

This is a fact: if the person gets depressed the first time, there is a 55 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 manic depression episode.

Depression is a genuine illness as it involves the mental, emotional and even physical function of the person. That is not just a transitive sad feeling that will go away when one wills it to. You will discover symptoms and signs as well as corresponding treatment. If not managed properly and immediately, it may escalate to worse conditions. Similar to other illness, major depression has also variations.

There are 3 kinds 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 may happen once, but recurring episodes are a possibility.

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

Bipolar disorder is also a type of depressive disorder that involves drastic feeling changes, from being very high one minute to severely depressed another minute. The manic cycle can make the person hyper and overenthusiastic but it changes as soon as the frustrated 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 following:

1. Continious “empty” feeling

2. Serious hopelessness

3. Feeling guilty and worthless all the time

4. Absence or loss of passions in activities that used to bring happiness to the person 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 desires.

10. Pronounced becoming easily irritated

11. Physical aches and discomfort 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: psychiatric therapy, antidepressant medicine and the mixture of both. Right now there are also times when electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and light therapy are use.
