Major Depression | Persistent Depressive Disorder | Bipolar Disorder | Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) | Psychotic Depression | Peripartum (Postpartum) Depression | Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) | ‘Situational’ Depression | Atypical Depression are the few depression types .
Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad, but these feelings usually go away within a few hours or a couple of days. When people have a depressive disorder, they feel really sad for a long time and cannot shake this feeling.
They also often have problems with sleeping, trouble with appetite, feel tired a lot of the time, and have problems concentrating. Depressive disorder interferes with their ability to do things in their lives that they normally can do well; and it causes pain for both the people with the disorder and those who care about them.
Depressive disorder is a common but serious illness. Many people never seek treatment for their depression, but most people who experience depression feel better if they get treatment .
Depression can take many different forms: frequent sad, anxious or “empty” mood; loss of interest and pleasure in activities; fatigue; irritability; social withdrawal, acting-out behavior and family conflict; insomnia; loss of appetite or weight gain; feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness or pessimism; declining school grades or job performance; and poor concentration. For some, the winter season can bring on a low mood; for others, depression is caused by major life changes, such as a divorce, major financial problems, a chronic illness, death of a loved one and other life stresses.
What most people don’t understand when they’re introduced to Ayurveda is that to uncover your true self, or prakriti, you first have to balance your current state, or vikriti .
