Short Description of Depression
Depression is a serious medical condition that negatively affects how a person feels, thinks and acts. The good news is, it is a treatable illness. What depression does is it creates intense feelings of sadness accompanied by loss of interest in activities that you normally enjoy. The condition may lead to a host of emotional and physical problems that may hinder a person’s ability to function both at work and at home. Feelings of sadness are a normal part of life as everyone can be affected by upsetting and sad events. However, if you feel hopeless and miserable for long periods of time but you do not know why it is possible that you may have depression.
Symptoms of Depression
- Intense feelings of sadness
- Loss of interest in activities that you once enjoyed
- Changes in eating patterns or appetite
- Weight loss that is not related to dieting
- Sleep problems
- Loss of energy or increased fatigue all the time
- Increased purposeless activities
- Feelings of worthlessness and guilt
- Problems with concentration or making decisions
- Entertaining thoughts of death or suicide as a means of salvation
Etiology of Depression
There are several causes of depression and they can range from biological causes to circumstantial. They include:
Strong Family History – You are at higher risk of developing depression if you have a strong family history of depression or there is a mood disorder in the family.
Early Childhood Trauma – There are some events that impact the way the body reacts to fear or certain stressful situations.
Structure of the Brain – Research shows that there is a greater risk of depression if the frontal side of the brain is less active. Scientists however cannot say if this occurs before or after the onset of symptoms of depression.
Medical Conditions – People that have chronic illness, chronic pain, those with ADHD, insomnia have a higher risk of developing depression.
Substance Abuse – People with a known substance abuse are at higher risk as well.
Many patients may never learn the cause of their depression. Approximately 30% of people that abuse drugs also have depression. Aside from these causes, other risk factors are:
- Low self-esteem and overly self-critical
- Previous mental illness
- Stressful live events such as divorce, loss of loved one etc.
Diagnosis of Depression
There is no single lab test that can help diagnose depression. However, your physician can make a proper diagnosis according to your symptoms as well as your psychological evaluation. If you are experiencing the following signs and symptoms for most of the day, everyday, for a period of at least two weeks, you might already be suffering from the condition.
- Persistent feelings of sadness or having an “empty” mood
- Persistent feelings of hopelessness and negativity about life
- Increased irritability
- Persistent feelings of guilt, helplessness and worthlessness
- Loss of interest or pleasure in previously enjoyed activities
- Loss of energy
- Always tired
- Slow movement and language
- Feelings of restlessness or having difficulty trying to stay still
- Inability to concentrate or make important decisions
- Sleep problems such as early-morning awakening or too much sleeping during the day
- Loss of appetite or weight changes not related to dieting
- Suicide attempts and thoughts of death
- Persistent aches and pains, cramps, headaches and or digestive problems without a clear physical cause that do not abate even with treatment
Keep in mind though that not everyone experiences the exact same symptoms as outlined above. Some patients only exhibit a few symptoms while others experience more. Several persistent symptoms on top of the low mood are necessary for a diagnosis of major depression. However, people with only a few but problematic symptoms can benefit from treatment for their subsyndromal condition. The gravity and frequency of symptoms and how long they exhibit varies depending on the patient or his particular condition. Symptoms can also vary depending on the stage of depression.
Types of Depression
Persistent Depressive Disorder
Also known as dysthymia, patients exhibit depressed mood that lasts for at least a couple of years. People diagnosed with persistent depressive disorder have episodes of major depression along with periods of less severe symptoms, however the symptoms should last for at least two years in order to be classified as persistent depressive disorder.
This is considered a much more serious condition compared to the “baby blues” which is a relatively mild depressive and anxiety condition that normally resolves two weeks after giving birth. Women that suffer from postpartum depression experience the full-blown major depression during pregnancy or after delivery of their child. They have intense feelings of sadness, anxiety and exhaustion and can make it very challenging for them to take care of their babies much less themselves.
This condition occurs when a patient exhibits severe depression plus some form of psychosis as well. Patients experience false mixed beliefs or delusions, or hearing and seeing upsetting things that others cannot hear or see such as hallucinations. The psychotic symptoms often have a depressive theme such as delusions of illness, poverty and guilt.
Seasonal Affective Disorder
This type of depression is characterized by the onset of depressive symptoms during the winter months when there is normally less sunlight during the day. The depression normally goes away during summer and spring. Winter depression as it is commonly called is normally associated with social withdrawal, increased sleep, weight gain and can predictably return every year as the season comes and goes.
While normally is different from depression, it is still included as patients with bipolar disorder experience episodes of very low moods that meet the definition of depression. The only difference is that they also experience euphoria as well.
