Depression – What is it?
Depression is a condition in which a person can feel low in energy, sad, hopeless, unmotivated, or disinterested in life in general. Many have times when they can feel low due to a short term illness, injury, or event in life. But when these feelings last for a longer period of time, it may be a case of depression.
When these feelings last for more than about two weeks and interfere with daily activities like work school or socialising, it is best to get professional help.
Depression is a situation that affects the way a person thinks, feels, behaves, and functions. This can be improved with various forms of help.
First stop is usually the family doctor, as it may be related to a physical health issue. A depression treatment can help in most cases.
