Depression is a mental health disorder that can negatively affect how you feel, think, and behave. It is more than just feeling blue or down in the dumps occasionally.
Depression is a serious medical condition that can cause physical as well as psychological symptoms. If left untreated, depression can lead to serious, even life-threatening, problems.
Symptoms of depression can include:
- Feeling sad, empty, or hopeless.
- Loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable,
- Sleeping too much or not being able to sleep.
- Changes in appetite or weight.
- Loss of energy and fatigue.
- Feeling worthless or guilty.
- Difficulty concentrating or making decisions.
- Thoughts of death or suicide.
Depression is more common in women than men, and there are different types of depression that can affect people differently. For example, postpartum depression can occur after the birth of a child, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that usually happens during the winter months.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is important to seek help from a mental health professional.
Depression is treatable, and there are many effective treatments available. With proper treatment, most people with depression can improve their symptoms and live healthy, productive lives.
