Depression: Signs, Symptoms, and Treatments

Feeling sad from time to time is normal. Of course, you can’t possibly be happy all the time. There were really times when you feel lonely. However, if your loneliness seems to be a daily feeling or doesn’t seem to go away, you may be suffering from depression. Do you feel like you are not as normal as you were once before? Depression isn’t just about you being sad – it changes how you think, feel and function.

Signs and Symptoms of Depression

If you are not too sure whether you are experiencing depression or just a normal phase of sadness, here are the signs and symptoms of depression you should take note:

  • You don’t feel happy anymore. The things you enjoy before, you don’t like doing them at all. You don’t feel joy on things that once made you feel excited.
  • Changes in your sleeping pattern. You find it hard to sleep or sometimes, you wake up earlier than usual or oversleep.
  • Easily irritated. You feel restless and even act violent even on small things. Your tolerance level is low as well as your temper. You get angry easily.
  • You feel tired all the time. You feel sluggish and tired even after you just woke up. Even doing small tasks are exhausting for you.
  • You blame yourself all the time. You feel guilty and even criticize yourself for doing a mistake.
  • Unexplainable pains. You experience pain quite often such as headache, back pain or stomach pain without any valid reason at all.

When you are suffering from these symptoms, seek support from family and friends or a professional help. The earlier you address the issue, the better it is for you.

Ways to Treat Depression

There are many types of therapy available to manage depression. The three most commonly used treatment for depression are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or the talk therapy, Interpersonal Therapy which is a form of psychotherapy wherein the therapist focuses on the relationship of the person to its peers, and Psychodynamic Therapy which deals with the issues and problems that the person is facing.

Moreover, recent studies were conducted to determine the possibility of using CBD oil in managing the symptoms of depression. Many people are supporting the possible use of medical marijuana in treating certain illnesses such as depression since many areas in the United States have now legalized the growing of Cannabis. The good thing about growing your own medical marijuana is that you can save greatly on your medication expenses since CBD oil can be really expensive.
