Depression Is More Than Just The Blues
Sadness is a normal part of life, but depression can go far deeper than the occasional blues. It can interfere with work, school and relationships and last a long time. A mental health professional can help by using medication, psychotherapy or both.
The disorder is caused by an imbalance of brain chemicals. It can be triggered by certain illnesses or life events, and it tends to run in families. Some studies suggest that people who have low self-esteem or a history of trauma are more likely to get depressed. Depression may also be more common in people who live in poor social and economic conditions.
Many people who have depression also have physical symptoms, such as a tight chest, constant headaches or digestive problems. People who are very depressed may feel like they have no reason to go on living, and some thoughts of suicide or self-harm are common. Depression is one of the most treatable mental disorders, and 80% to 90% of those who get treatment improve.
A diagnosis of depression is usually made after a careful mental health exam and medical history done by a mental health professional. Sometimes, depression is mixed with another condition that causes manic or hypomanic episodes, such as bipolar disorder.
Symptoms of depression include a feeling of extreme sadness, worthlessness or hopelessness, a loss of interest in activities that used to bring pleasure, changes in sleeping patterns and feelings of fatigue or guilt. It can cause people to withdraw from family and friends, and it can lead to substance abuse. Depression can cause trouble with thinking and making decisions, which can make it harder to plan for the future. It can also cause difficulty with memory and concentration.
Psychotherapy is a type of talk therapy that can help. It focuses on changing unhealthy emotions, thoughts and behaviors. There are many types of psychotherapy, and they can be brief or continue for months or even years. Medication, called antidepressants, is often used in addition to psychotherapy. There are a lot of different kinds of antidepressants, and it may take some trial and error to find the right one for you.
Some studies have found that depression can change personality, but the effect is usually only temporary. It is not known why depression can affect personality, but it could be related to chemical changes in the brain.
It’s important to remember that depression is not a weakness or a character flaw. It is a disease that can be treated with medicine or psychotherapy, and often it gets better with both. The earlier you start treatment, the more quickly you will feel better. You can find a provider near you by searching our online database of mental health professionals.
