Signs Of Depression Signs Of Depression:


Depression is something that nearly everyone faces at some point in a busy lifetime.  Normal sadness can turn into depression and it is often normal to feel sad.  You may feel sad when a friend or loved one dies, you are forced to move to another location, start a new job or attend a new school.


How is sadness related to depression?


You may become sad when someone you care about disappoints you or if you do something that is a disappointment to someone you love. 


There are many causes of sadness.  Sadness is not depression although it can easily slide into depression.  Depression is defined as a “down” or sad feeling that lasts longer than two weeks.


Sadness passes with time; usually it goes away without treatment.  If you slide into depression from sadness, it takes a lot more work to pull out of a depressive state. 


So what is the cause of depression?


What causes depression in you may be different from your neighbor or best friend.  Depression is hard to diagnose because many times a person does not show any physical signs of depression.


A person who has learned at a young age not to display emotions can hide depression well into their adult years.


Are the symptoms of depression the same for each individual?


Depression symptoms are also different for every individual.  One person may have trouble sleeping; the next person may feel the urge to sleep all the time.  Another person may feel the need to take a bath or shower several times a day to relieve depression symptoms.
