What is depression

Depression is characterized by a feeling of intense sadness, mood of no longer sitting, weight loss or gain, sleep disturbances, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, concentration weakness or indecision and suicidal thoughts. Depression may occur after a recent loss or other unpleasant event, but is disproportionate to that event and lasts longer than is normally the case in such a situation. After anxiety, depression is the most common mental disorder. Women have depression twice as often as men. Social class, race and culture do not seem to affect the chances of developing depression. Hormones are an important factor, especially in women. Changes in hormone levels can cause mood swings shortly before menstruation and after delivery. Swallowing hormones can also contribute
