Most people have felt depressed or sad at times. Depression can be a common reaction to the struggles in life, the experience of grief or loss, and fluctuating levels self-esteem. However, when these feelings tend to happen in intense amounts they may last for days, weeks or months. Intense sadness may include feeling hopeless, hopeless and worthless.
It is not uncommon when feeling depressed that a person may experience a depressed mood, fatigue, worthlessness, impaired concentration, insomnia, weight change and a lack of interest in activities previously found enjoyable.
Depression that is not treated may increase risky behaviour such as alcohol and drug addiction. It could also ruin relationships, cause problems at work and make other medical conditions harder to treat. It could also increase suicide thoughts.
