Major depressive disorder (MDD), also known simply as depression, is a mental disorder characterized by at least two weeks of low mood that is present across most situations. It is often accompanied by low self-esteem, loss of interest in normally enjoyable activities, low energy, and pain without a clear cause.
DEPRESSION PHYSICALLY AFFECTS THE BRAIN
Going through depression can feel like being trapped in a cage with no escape. Beyond feelings of constant sadness and anhedonia or lack of motivation, there is a constant feeling of lethargy and irritability. Appetite and sleep patterns are significantly and noticeably changed to an extent it impacts day to day functioning.
Also experienced are feelings of hopelessness and low self-worth. There is a feeling of confusion which can cloud cognition and ability to think coherently. Recurrent thoughts of death or suicidal ideation may not be uncommon in somebody suffering from depression.
Symptoms can be so impairing; it may impact personal and social life such as relationships and decision-making ability. It also can impact professional life such as loss or termination from a job as well as stunted personal growth including deterioration in academics.
Depression can be enormously debilitating leading to an extremely poor quality of life, which no individual deserves.REQUEST A CALL BACK
