Depression – What You Need to Know
Depression is a disorder that can cause problems in your life and in your relationships with people. It can interfere with your ability to work, study and enjoy activities you enjoy. It can also affect your sleep, eating and social behavior. This condition is very serious and often requires long-term treatment to improve.
About the Disease
Depression affects around 3.8% of adults, including 5.0% of women, worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It can be a severe illness that interferes with daily life and causes significant emotional distress.
Symptoms of Depression
The most common symptoms of depression are sadness, fatigue, low energy and poor concentration. They can be accompanied by feelings of worthlessness and guilt, thoughts of suicide, changes in appetite or weight, and sleep difficulties.
There are several kinds of treatment for depression, and the best one depends on your unique situation. It may involve medication or counseling. You can also try alternative and complementary treatments.
Your doctor can recommend a treatment that is right for you. It can take time to find the right treatment, but it usually works and will make a difference in your life.
Medications for Depression
Most people who have depression respond well to antidepressants and therapy. Your doctor can prescribe one or more medications, and they will monitor you to see if you are responding. You might need to take them for a few weeks before you see any improvement.
You can also try to reduce your stress and make some changes in your life. Having too much stress is a risk factor for depression, so take steps to lower it as much as possible.
Your Family History of Depression
If you have a family member with depression, it’s important to talk to them about how they’re feeling. It’s not uncommon for people with depression to have a family history of other mental health conditions, so you might want to make sure that they are receiving adequate treatment for these disorders as well.
Taking Care of Yourself
It is important to get enough sleep, eat healthy food and exercise regularly. These practices can help you feel more energetic and happy, both of which are essential to fighting depression.
Be sure to tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter or prescription drugs, supplements and herbs. These can increase the effectiveness of an antidepressant or even help you tolerate it better.
Avoiding alcohol and other drugs can be helpful for your mental health. But you should never use these substances as a substitute for medical treatment or therapy. They can be harmful and lead to addiction.
Getting Support from Other People
It is very common for people with depression to feel alone and sad. You can share your experience with friends and relatives, or you can seek out a counselor to get support. You can also try to connect with other depressed people, either online or in a social group.
