There are several types of depression. Most of them share similar symptoms such as sadness, general low mood, sleep disturbances, agitation, low self-esteem, fatigue, a lack of concentration and/or a lack of interest in normal daily activities. Although sufferers can often feel very alone and isolated in their struggle, depression is very common and it can afflict anyone irrespective of their gender, status or age.
Individuals may often be convinced that there is no point in asking for help and may not have hope for a way to feel better. It is therefore common for people suffering from depression not to seek treatment in spite of the fact that the majority would respond positively to doing so.
Depression can filter through to every area of one’s life until there seems to be no escape and no safe haven. Work may be strongly affected, individuals may draw back from their social activities, relationships and even families who can also suffer as a result. That is why treatment is such an important step.
