Major Depression is the most severe form of depression. It involves low mood or loss of enjoyment in most activities for two or more weeks. Symptoms such as change in sleep patterns and appetite, loss of energy, loss of self-esteem, difficulty concentrating and preoccupation with death or suicide. The depressed person may withdraw from friends and family, and be unable to work.
Depression may occur when a person has experienced a significant change in their life, or depression can also be a hereditary gene passed down from your biological family. That type of depression can occur when a person has experienced no significant change in their life.
Everyone has times they feel sad and don’t enjoy life. For some people the emotional pain becomes so severe or prolonged that it affects their day-to-day routine. If you feel that this may be the case, it is important to seek either a physician or a professional mental health therapist.
