Being clinically depressed means experiencing a profound and persistent emotional state of sadness, hopelessness, and despair. It goes beyond typical feelings of unhappiness or stress. In clinical depression, these feelings are intense, lasting for at least two weeks, and they often disrupt your daily life.
Symptoms can include a loss of interest or pleasure in things you once enjoyed, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and negative thoughts about yourself and the future. Physical symptoms like headaches or stomachaches can also be present.
It’s important to understand that clinical depression is a real and treatable medical condition. It’s not a sign of personal weakness. Seeking help from a mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist, is crucial. Treatment may include therapy, medication, or a combination of both, and with proper care, many people can recover and lead fulfilling lives.
