Depression is something we feel on a regular basis, as we are capable of feeling sadness and frustration over different aspects of life. However, when depression affects us for a long time and we can’t seem to cope and adjust from it, it can have a very detrimental and harmful effect not just to our behavior, but the way we look at life as well. Our vision of our life might be grey and dreary, and it’s not good for our mental health. Experiencing depression might be a normal thing from time to time, but if you think your depression is affecting you in a negative way, do feel free to ask for professional help.

Depression: It Affects Everyone

Depression affects everyone, regardless of age or gender or social status. The World Health Organization declares depression as the fourth leading cause of global illness burden worldwide. While depression can happen to us to any age, most people tend to experience heavy waves of depression during their early 30s, and depression also tends to happen to older adults. Unfortunately, depression isn’t just about losing someone or feeling bad about something, but can be caused by other factors that can’t easily be pinpointed.

This doesn’t mean that there haven’t been any studies on depression, however. Two types of depression exists:

  • Having a depressive reaction means experiencing depression because of a particular situation. Psychologically-speaking, this is a “stress response syndrome” or an “adjustment disorder.” Symptoms can vary, and can even be severe, but these tend to last for a short period of time.
  • Having major depression, however, is a serious matter as this can make people be unable to “function” properly. Those with depression not only have a depressed mood, but they find it difficult to perform tasks or even enjoy in their usual activities. Some people who experience major depression also lose their particular touch with reality, and may even have hallucinations and delusions.
