A person suffering from depression often feels as though every day is a struggle. A good understanding of how depression works can however help people recover faster. This means that understanding what caused your depression, what the symptoms are, what is keeping it going and how to deal with negative thoughts that might be making it worse are important in overcoming depression.
With this in mind, booking an appointment with a specialist at a depression clinic in Newcastle, or even online, is definitely worth the effort when it comes to getting out of depression.
Everyone feels a little down at one point in time or another, but depression is more than just irregular bouts of sadness. Depression is a mood disorder, which carries with it prolonged feelings of loss of interest in daily life, lack of enjoyment, low energy and motivation and negative thoughts about yourself, your situation and maybe even others.
If these symptoms persist for more than two weeks, then it is considered a depressive episode. Moreover, depression can also cause a person to have consistent thoughts of, or even act on, feelings of self-harm or suicide.
Depression can take on various forms, including bipolar disorder, postnatal depression, psychotic depression, situational depression, and atypical depression, among others.
Some of the most noticeable symptoms of depression include persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness, loss of interest in daily activities, irritability, frustration, recurrent thoughts of suicide or death, lack of energy, and withdrawal from other people, among others.
