Depression – What You Can Do
When you suffer from depression, you may wonder what you can do to help yourself feel better. There are many different ways to do this, including getting plenty of sleep and exercising regularly. You should also talk to a mental health professional and spend time with people you love. Doing something nice for a friend or loved one can make you feel better, too. It may take a while, but with proper treatment, depression will improve over time. Trying to hide it or ignore it may make it worse.
Although there is no single cause of postpartum depression, the symptoms are similar to those of other types of depression. A person suffering from postpartum depression may feel depressed and have a negative mood for months or years, whereas someone who experiences milder symptoms may feel better in just a few days. Although this type of depression is often referred to as “seasonal affective disorder,” it can be a serious condition requiring the help of a health professional.
Physical changes in the brain in people suffering from depression are thought to be important, but their significance is not yet clear. Although the exact mechanisms involved in depression remain a mystery, there is evidence that changes in the brain’s chemicals play a role. These chemicals are called neurotransmitters, and they interact with neurocircuits to keep the mood stable. If you’ve ever felt low, you’re probably depressed. There is no known cure for depression, so there are many treatments available.
The American Psychiatric Association uses the DSM-5 criteria for depression. Your doctor may look up your symptoms against the criteria in the DSM. If you’re feeling down, talk to your doctor, who can determine if you’re suffering from depression. He or she may offer treatment or refer you to a mental health professional who can help you. These treatments may vary from case to case, but your doctor’s care can be helpful.
Whether it’s medication or therapy, the best way to treat depression is to seek help. Many treatments are based on evidence of how well a particular treatment can help the individual. There are many different types of depression treatments available, including psychotherapy. Many people experience a range of different symptoms, including irritability, exhaustion, and even apathy. The treatment for depression will vary depending on the cause of the depression, but the most common treatment is therapy, which is available for most people suffering from the condition.
In most cases, symptoms of depression can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days or weeks. A depressive episode is usually characterized by a persistent depressed mood, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, and thoughts of death or suicide. It may also cause problems with concentration, eating, sleeping, and enjoying activities. The symptoms of depression can also impact physical health, including the immune system. Symptoms may even lead to weight gain, which can be dangerous.
