What Is Depression?

Depressed Person

People from all walks of life experience bouts of sadness in their lives. Unwanted life events happen to everyone on the planet: loss of a loved one, illness, money troubles, relationship issues, job stress. While all people will deal with life occurrences that are upsetting and even heart-wrenching, some people will experience sadness that they cannot rise above. For them, there is no “snapping out of it,” or “coming to peace” with their circumstances. Depression is a mood disorder that causes long-lasting, persistent feelings of sadness. Depression can also lead to loss of interest in day-to-day life with the people you enjoy being around.

Depression is not something to be taken lightly in yourself or a loved one. Depression can have debilitating effects on a person’s life and emotional state. Symptoms to stay on alert for include:

  • Pain or physical illness
  • Overwhelming feelings of sadness
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Fatigue
  • Social isolation
  • Poor performance at work or school
  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Loss of sleep
  • Alcohol and/or drug abuse
  • Excess weight gain or weight loss
  • Self-mutilation
  • Suicidal feelings or suicidal attempts
