Depression is Serious
Yes, almost everyone has been depressed.
You’ve probably described yourself as:
- feeling sad
- or down in the dumps
Depressed mood is a common reaction to certain life events, a feature of certain psychiatric syndromes and a symptom of a number of medical conditions.
If these feelings of unhappiness, depression, loss, sadness, anger or frustration interfere with your everyday life for an extended period of time, you may need to get help.
If you ignore it, you may begin to suffer from cognitive impairments such as difficulty concentrating, remembering details and making decisions. Your weight may change dramatically — either eating less and losing weight or increased appetite and weight gain. You may develop insomnia or sleep all the time. You may even have thoughts of hurting yourself or thoughts of wanting to commit suicide.
