Depression is classified as a mood disorder. It may be described as feelings of sadness, loss, or anger that interfere with a person’s everyday activities. It is also fairly common and can cause severe symptoms that affect how one feels, thinks, sleeps, eats, and works.
Feeling down at times is completely normal. Sad events happen to everyone. However, if someone is feeling miserable or hopeless on a regular basis and the symptoms persist for prolonged periods of time, then he/she may be dealing with depression.
Depression is considered a serious medical condition, and it can get worse without proper treatment. Those with depression can feel better with medication, psychotherapy, counseling, and/or lifestyle changes.
Symptoms associated with depression encompass, but are not limited to, sadness, emptiness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities that used to be enjoyable, drastic change in weight, difficulty sleeping or oversleeping, energy loss, anxiety, agitation, restlessness, slowed thinking, hampered speaking or body movements, feelings of worthlessness and thoughts of death or suicide.
