Many of people suffer from depression and do not even know it. Do you know the common depression symptoms? Do you know about different types of depression? Let me give you some tips about depression so you can talk openly with your doctor or a counselor. Find out the warning signs of more serious depression problems so you can prevent depression complications. Let’s talk about one form of depression such as Chronic Depression or Dysthymia?
Chronic depression, or dysthymia, is characterized by a long-term (two years or more) depressed mood. There are also symptoms present that are associated with major depression but not enough for a diagnosis of major depression. Chronic depression is less severe than major depression and typically does not disable the person. If you have dysthymia or chronic depression, you may also experience one or more episodes of major depression during your lifetime.
For in-depth information, see WebMD's Chronic Depression (Dysthymia).
What Is Atypical Depression?
The key symptoms of atypical depression include:
· Extreme sensitivity to rejection
· Moods that worsen or improve in direct response to events
Regular -- or "typical" -- depression, on the other hand, tends to be marked by pervasive sadness and a pattern of loss of appetite and difficulty fall or staying asleep.
If you have more information you can leave comments, or call your local doctor or counselor in your area for diagnosis.
