When bad mood turns out to be depression
Nowadays, almost every one of us encounters problems in his everyday life, be it professional or personal. After some traumatic experience, we tend to cry, to get angry, to fight with a close person, or just to feel fallen and sad. Often, however, in these cases, we resort to defining our condition as “depression” or saying that we are “depressed”. However, in the presence of this type of condition, it does not always mean that we have fallen into the state, which can be called by the medical term “depression”. Depression is a more serious illness that does not go away quickly after the trauma, but it lasts a long time. The exact causes of depression can not yet be determined, but one thing is clear – they may be anything, and sometimes they may not even be visible at fisrt sight. If the condition of a bad mood, that affects both our mental state and the physical body, lasts for more than a few weeks and affects all aspects of our lives, sometimes accompanied by suicidal thoughts, if we feel useless and insignificant, then it comes to an illness and medical help will be needed. Depression, like all other illnesses, is being treated and the majority of people who have sought help or have recourse to coping with it are enjoying success.
Women tend to suffer from depression 2 times more than men
There is neither age nor gender for depression. It can affect teenagers, elderly people, women and men, and the symptoms are the same. But it is a fact that women suffer from depression twice as much as men. This may be due to several facts. On the one hand, the milder sex is more inclined to share their feelings and more often seeks help from a doctor when a condition such as depression occurs. Therefore, the attendance of women to their doctors seeking help, in the presence of depression, is greater than that of men who are not always willing to recognize their problem, and accordingly, society can not include them in the rankings.
From a different point of view, female and male sexes have a number of somatic differences. Female sex hormones – estrogen and progesterone have a great effect, and when levels of these hormones change during pregnancy, monthly period, menopause and childbirth, this can lead to depression.
