Introduction to Depression

Depression is a serious psychological disorder that requires medical treatment. Some people say they are depressed from time to time but occasional feelings of sadness that do not have a prolonged impact on daily activities is not true depression. True depression, however, can be treated and if you or someone you know is showing signs of depression, it is recommended that you get to a doctor immediately because without proper treatment depression can lead to physical and financial problems. The tricky part is sometimes recognizing the symptoms because many people affected by depression do not realize the severity of their disorder.

Many people suffer from depression without realizing that their disorder can be treated. Understanding the symptoms of depression is the first step to better health. Once you are aware that you or a friend is suffering from clinical depression, you can seek medical attention or encourage your friend to consult their physician about their symptoms. Some of the symptoms of depression include persistent sad feelings, feeling hopeless, a loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, feeling worthless, lack of energy, difficulty in concentrating, loss of memory, change in sleeping patterns, change in appetite accompanied by either extreme weight loss or gain, restlessness, physical pain that is unresponsive to treatment and thoughts of death or suicide.

The aforementioned are some key signs of depression but it is important to not that not all people suffering from depression will experience all of these symptoms. If you or someone you know is experiencing one or more of the above symptoms it is advisable to visit your doctor and tell them about your concerns of depression. If left untreated, depression can have a significant effect on your lifestyle. Those who are depressed sometimes feel worthless and these feelings can lead to destructive behaviors. Additionally, those who are depressed have trouble concentrating, making decisions and even sleeping and this could make you less productive at work and put you at risk of losing your job.
