Those who suffer from marked periods of sadness have probably been faced with this question regarding depression help. The healing process isn’t always so simple, though.
Depression is a condition marked by feelings of sadness, inadequacy and worthlessness. As human beings, we all feel blue or sad at one time or another. It’s normal for everyone to feel this way for short periods of time.
There’s a difference, however, between sadness and depression. Sadness comes and goes as a natural part of the human experience. Depression, on the other hand, is a mood disorder that adversely affects a person’s quality of life and hinders one’s day-to-day living.
Not quite sure whether you or a loved one is depressed or just feeling periodically sad? Symptoms of depression include:
- Loss of interest or pleasure in normal activities
- Insomnia or excessive sleeping
- Irritability or frustration, even over small matters
- Reduced sex drive
- Crying spells for no apparent reason
- Marked changes in appetite
- Agitation or restlessness
Inspirational author, doctor and famed philosopher Deepak Chopra says, “As a doctor, I know that someone isn’t depressed if they can answer a simple question about a bad situation: Is this something I can fix, something I should put up with or something I need to walk away from? Depressed people deny themselves those key decisions.”
One in 10 adults in the U.S. report feeling depressed, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, making depression treatment one of the most addressed mental illnesses today. As complex beings, there is no known cause of depression, nor are there easy depression solutions.
