Depression – What is It?
Depression is a mood disorder that can affect your feelings, thoughts and actions. It can be difficult to deal with, but it is treatable. If it is not treated, symptoms can become severe and interfere with your daily life.
The disorder can be caused by a number of things, including illness, stress and a change in family or work circumstances. However, it can also occur for no apparent reason. In some cases, people who have a history of depression in their families are more likely to experience it themselves.
A diagnosis of depression should be made by a health professional using a thorough diagnostic evaluation that includes an interview, physical examination and blood tests. If the depression is due to a medical condition, the doctor may prescribe medication. They might also suggest lifestyle changes and talk therapy.
Symptoms of depression include feelings of sadness, low self-esteem, loss of interest in activities, and difficulty sleeping or eating. They can be very disruptive to your daily life and may cause you to think about suicide.
You should seek help if you have these symptoms for more than a few weeks. You should talk to your doctor about treatment options and find out what is available in your area.
The most common treatments for depression are psychotherapy and antidepressants. These drugs alter the way your brain chemistry works to reduce depressive symptoms. There are several types of antidepressants, and it can take time to find the one that is right for you. Some have side effects, but they often go away with time.
Other treatment options are exercise, social support and taking part in a self-help group. These help you cope with the impact of your mental illness, share experiences and build skills to overcome depression.
Your doctor might suggest talking with a counsellor or psychotherapist, who will teach you how to identify unhealthy thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to your depression. They might recommend a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps you understand and change your negative thinking patterns. They can also suggest more practical measures, such as changing the way you handle stress or finding a new job.
In some cases, your doctor might also prescribe a drug called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by increasing the amount of serotonin in your brain. SSRIs are the most widely used antidepressants and are usually prescribed for mild to moderate depression.
They can also be helpful for chronic depression, which is a long-term condition that can affect your whole life. It can include many different symptoms, from sleep problems to anger.
There are also different types of depression, depending on when it happens and what is causing it. Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is most commonly felt during the winter and fall. The symptoms are often worse in the evenings and on days when there is less sunlight.
Another form of depression is postpartum depression, or PMD, which occurs after giving birth. It can last for a year or more, but it can lift in response to light therapy.
