Understanding Depression – What it is, Why It Hurts
Depression can occur at any time. It can build slowly over the course of one’s life. It can be a response to trauma or life events. It can be caused by experiences, diet, and even genetics. Depression is more than sadness. It is a feeling of losing hope, struggling to experience feelings of joy, and potentially causing dark thoughts.
Depression can also take many forms:
- Major Depression – Also known as clinical depression, where a person has a depressed mood and loses interest in daily activities.
- Persistent Depressive Disorder – Also known as “dysthymia,” where a person experiences regular forms of depression but not always ongoing the way major depression is.
- Bipolar Disorder – Also known as “manic depression,” where a person cycles through times of severe depression and mania.
- Postpartum Depression – Depression that occurs after the birth of a baby, typically due to hormonal changes and life stress after childbirth.
- Seasonal Depression – Also known as “seasonal affective disorder,” seasonal depression involves a combination of chemical changes and life experiences that create depression in winter months.
Depression has many different symptoms, including sadness, irritability, anhedonia (inability to feel joy), insomnia, hypersomnia, anxiety, and mood swings. If depression is severe enough, it may come with suicidal thoughts or actions.
But one symptom that all depression has in common is that it makes itself feel untreatable. Hopelessness is a symptom of depression, which pushes people to not seek treatment as their depression makes them feel like it won’t work.
