Symptoms of depressions are insidious and can easily creep up on you.  You may not know it until it's too late, which means that your life has begun to fall apart without you even realizing it.  Read on to learn exactly what you need to take back control of your life.

There are many different types of depression:

  • Major Depression, (aka: Clinical Depression)
  • Chronic Depression
  • Atypical Depression
  • Bi-polar Depression
  • Psychotic Depression
  • Postpartum depression
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
  • premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)

All of these different types of depression each have their own characteristics, and are important in their own right.  As I progress with this site I will breakdown each of them for you so that you can understand each one more completely.

The National Institute for Mental Health breaks it down nicely.

As for now, Let's talk about symptoms of depressions in a more generalized way.  

Symptoms of Depressions

Look, everybody has days when they are feeling sad or blue, but usually these feeling pass within a couple of days.  If you are having these types of feelings and they aren't going away, then you may be depressed.

I have been there, my friend.

I was diagnosed with Bi-Polar Manic Depression as a teen, and when I wasn't medicated my life was on the line. Goodness knows I tried to quit the meds more than once.  Somehow I knew my problem wasn't a lack of medication, but I couldn't seem to make it stop.  Only God knows how I made it through all of that to be here with you today.  I have not been on any medication in 14 years.  You can learn more about my story here.
