What is Depression?

Everyone knows what it feels like to get the blues once in a while. But depression is a serious illness that is more severe than a bad day and lasts much longer. Symptoms of depression stop a person from being able to function and enjoy daily activities for weeks or months at a time. It can happen to anyone, and it isn’t something that people can control by force of will or “snap out of.”

Some common symptoms of depression include:
  • Feeling sad, guilty, empty or hopeless
  • Fatigue and a lack of energy and motivation
  • A loss of pleasure in activities that were previously enjoyed
  • Unusual sleep or eating habits
  • “Mental fog” -- trouble concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
  • Physical aches and pains
  • Suicidal thoughts or a preoccupation with death

We don’t yet know what causes depression, but it’s thought that it is a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and social influences. Because of this, the most effective treatments for depression combine medication with psychotherapy. Therapy, especially cognitive-behavioral therapy, can be extremely helpful in resolving the negative thoughts and feelings that come with depression. It gives patients new tools that they can use themselves to cope when their depression is making them feel down.

Some of the common medications used to treat depression include antidepressants such as SSRI’s (Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft) or atypical antidepressants (Cymbalta, Wellbutrin). It’s important to remember that these medications have different effects on everybody, and no one medication works right for everyone. You may have to try a couple before finding the one that works just right for you. If the first medication you try doesn’t work, don’t give up, and talk to your doctor about trying something else. In extreme cases where medication is not enough, electro-convulsive therapy and hospitalization may be the answer to keeping a severely depressed person safe.

Depression is a difficult illness to deal with, but it is more common than you’d think and there are many people who can help. With the right treatment, you can get back to fully enjoying your life again.
