Getting depressed or feeling low because of a certain problem such as losing a loved one, going through a divorce or maybe sickness is quite normal and these depressions are short lived. However, if you face constant sadness it’s called Major Depressive Order or Clinical Depression. People who suffer from clinical depression are gravely affected by it in various ways such as losing appetite, sleeping disorder or even losing interest in the activities they once enjoyed. They might also feel that life is just not worth living anymore.
If you’ve faced at least five of below symptoms, there’s a chance you might be facing clinical depression:
- You feel sad or irritable most of the day, nearly every day.
- You are less interested in most activities you once enjoyed.
- You suddenly lose or gain weight or have a change in appetite.
- You have trouble falling asleep or want to sleep more than usual.
- You experience feelings of restlessness.
- You feel unusually tired and have a lack of energy.
- You feel worthless or guilty, often about things that wouldn’t normally make you feel that way.
- You have difficulty concentrating, thinking, or making decisions.
- You think about harming yourself or committing suicide.
No one can exactly point out how or what causes depression but there are few possible reasons what might trigger or worsen the condition, such as abuse of any kind such as sexual or physical torment, genetics, drugs (medications of some kind), major events such as losing a loved one, long illness, any kind of conflict that one can’t handle.
There are so many women who are a target of Clinical Depression but they keep hush about it. We asked around various women if they were willing to share their story with us, but only three brave girls responded and answered few of our questions.
