Depression is recognized as a mood disorder characterized by the prolonged feeling of sadness and loss of interest in otherwise regular activities. The symptoms include loss of sleep and appetite, loss of interest, persistent feeling of sadness and lowered self-esteem. These symptoms should last for a minimum of 4 weeks for the individual to be diagnosed with depression. Sometimes, at its later stages, depression can also be accompanied by suicidal tendencies.
How it can be treated?
- Role of anti-depressants: Depression has become rather common in the present day scenario. The treatment varies from prescription drugs to therapy. People who have depression are usually given mood enhancers and anti-depressants. Antidepressants are medicines used to help people who have depression. With the help of these depression medications, most people can achieve significant recovery from depression. Most antidepressants are believed to work by slowing the removal of certain chemicals from the brain. These chemicals are called neurotransmitters (such as serotonin and norepinephrine). Neurotransmitters are needed for normal brain function and are involved in the control of mood and in other responses and functions, such as eating, sleep, pain, and thinking. Antidepressants help people with depression by making these natural chemicals more available to the brain. By restoring the brain’s chemical balance, antidepressants help relieve the symptoms of depression. Specifically, antidepressant drugs help reduce the extreme sadness, hopelessness, and lack of interest in life that are typical in people with depression. However, these are but short-term solutions to depression and don’t necessarily cure the individual completely. For the treatment to be effective, the drug intake must be combined with therapeutic techniques to solve the problem at the root level.
- Therapy: Different therapeutic techniques are used to treat depression depending majorly on the individual, the cause of depression and general history and state of mind. Research suggests that client centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are a good start with an average case of depression. The therapists usually incorporate several other methods based on the client’s need to get maximum effect. Adlerian techniques, where individuals are made to comprehend the thoughts and emotions which influence their lifestyles and adopt a more productive and positive way of life, are rather helpful with most clients who suffer from depression.
Depression is a fairly common mental health disorder today, affecting a large population. Depression must be acknowledged as a proper mood disorder and not just a passing phase. It is completely curable with proper medicine and therapeutic sessions. The individual is able to move over the feelings of unhappiness and lack of interest with proper care and acceptance from loved ones in addition to therapy and the drugs, of course. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I was a very fun loving and happy go lucky boy but now I lack such confidence , energy and is a bit more agressive in nature. Sometimes I fill very low and emotional.
I have always been a shy kid (somewhat unsteady emotionally: they have more control over me than I have over them). I often preferred keep things inside, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. Then a few years back, I failed my higher secondary exams, due to which I went into severe depression. I became even more isolated than before. And eventually, old wounds started to crop up, I ended up feeling even more hopeless (partly because my self esteem was close to zero, and partly because of my over-thinking nature. On top of everything, I faced more complications (a few failed friendships, and some relationships). There were not many with whom I could share my secrets with. And when I did, it made no difference, I felt nothing at all. Nowadays I have started to do a bit of part time work, which has helped me tremendously, mainly in regards with having a higher level of self esteem, being emotionally healthier and not feeling too nervous while surrounded by people who are practically strangers. But after suffering for quite some time, I have some distinct scars with me, which I am listing now: A) My memory power has dwindled down a lot. I was an above average student, now I am the perfect example of" outta sight, outta mind" B) I often misread words, I often mistake one word to be another, whenever I'm in a hurry. C) I often fail to notice that I have missed a word when writing something, if I have said it correctly to myself in my head. D) I feel bipolar-ish at times, I go from emotion to emotion quite quickly, without intending to do so, angry to sad to numb to unnaturally joyful. And also, there are times when I want to be sad (addicted. Etc. So what should I do?
