Got the blues? or is it depression?

Ever feel like you are the only one who is sad in a world of happy people? Everyone experiences stress, sadness and anxiety from time to time – it’s part of life. These feelings often happen when you a lose a job, children move away from home, during divorce, with a death in the family, or during retirement. But when changes in mood and behavior interfere with your ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities, it could be a sign of depression.

Different Kinds of Depression

There are many names for the different kinds of depression. People with recurrent episodes of major depression are sometimes said to have unipolar depression (or what used to be called “clinical depression”), because they only experience periods of low, or depressed mood. Those living with chronic, low-grade depression have what is called dysthymia. When people experience both dysthymia and major depression, they are sometimes said to have double depression.  Mood disorder symptoms also can arise after giving birth (postpartum depression) and they can sometimes be accompanied by psychosis (psychotic depression). Still others who experience a depressed mood during the fall and winter seasons are said to have seasonal affective disorder, SAD.
