What is Depression?
Depression is a type of mood disorder in the brain which characterizes a depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life.
Signs and Symptoms:
You feel hopeless and helpless
You’ve lost interest in friends, activities, and things you used to enjoy
You feel tired all the time, sleep and appetite has changed
What are some causes to Depression?
Let me tell you, there can be causes beyyyyooonnnnnd causes for depression to appear. It includes a combination of biological, psychological, and social sources of distress. Depending on your living conditions at home, that can be a cause. Whether or not you feel your looks aren't good enough (not being confident in yourself), feeling and thinking that no one will miss you or if you just disappeared no one would notice.
THE REAL DEAL:
Depression is scary and I connect with this on a personal level. The most deadly of all are your own thoughts. Your mind plays games with you telling you that you aren't good enough and that there is no point in being here. Your own thoughts, your own mind does this to you, that is why this is so scary. That's what makes you think; "If my own body rejects me, I mine as well too."
