Depression Don't Let it Overcome on You

Every one occasionally feels sad, but these feelings are unusually fleeting and pass within a couple of days. When a person has a depressive disorder, it interferes with daily life, normal functioning, and causes pain for 
both the person with the disorder and those who cares about his or her.(from Times of India feb 20,2011)

"The three main features of depression, whether in children or adults, are feeling unlovable feeling that you are worthless and feeling as though you have no control over relation ships. -Dr. Kavin Stark"
It is very common illness at modern times, as we are becoming more and more busy and alone in over life, but it doesn't mean that it is not serious. It is a very serious illness. I personally experienced it when my brother suffer from this. I was also very tense during his illness. It needs a proper treatment. As i experienced it myself and know what going on with the family members of the person who suffers, i think why not this be a subject for me to write on.

What Depression Is:

  • Depression is an illness, in the same way that diabetes or heart disease are illnesses.
  • Depression is an illness that affects the entire body, not just the mind.
  • Depression is an illness that one in five people will suffer during their lifetime.
  • Depression is the leading cause of alcoholism, drug abuse and other addictions.
  • Depression is an illness that can be successfully treated in more than eighty percent of the people who have it.
  • Depression is an equal-opportunity illness – it affects all ages, all races, all economic groups and both genders. Women, however, suffer from depression almost twice as much as men do.
  • At least half of the people suffering from depression do not get proper treatment.

What Depression Is Not:

  • Depression is not something to be ashamed of.
  • Depression is not the same thing as feeling “blue” or “down.”
  • Depression is not a character flaw or the sign of a weak personality.
  • Depression is not a “mood” someone can “snap out of.” (Would you ask someone to “snap out of” diabetes or high blood pressure?)
