Are All Depression The Same:-

Are All Depression The Same?

The short answer to this is no.

There are a number of different types. One that researchers and professionals commonly refer to is called ‘major depression’.

According to the American psychiatric Association one can be said to have major depression if one have at least five of the possible symptoms listed below which have to be present for at least two weeks.

You Must have one of These Symptoms:-

  • Low mood
  • Marked Loss of Pleasure.
  • Significant change in oppetite and loss of at least 5 percent normal Body weight.
  • Sleep Disturbance.
  • Agitation or felling of being Slowed down.
  • Loss of energy or felling fatigued virtually every day.
  • Feeling of Worthlessness, low self-esteem, tendency to feel guilty
  • Loss of ability to concentrate.
  • Thoughts Of death and suicide.

Although a list like the one in Table is important to professionals, it does not really capture the variety and complexity of the experience of depression.

I have inluded this list of symptoms here to give you An idea of how some professionals tend to think about depression.

For example, I would include feelings of being trapped as a common Depression symptom, and many psychologists feel that hopelessness, irritability, and anxiety are also very central to depression.

  1. Yes that’s very true about feeling trapped. I would say that my depression got really dangerous in the past when I felt trapped. I’d never wish that feeling on anyone.
