Depression is classified as a mood disorder. It may be described as feelings of sadness, loss, or anger that interfere with a person’s everyday activities.
Anxiety Disorders affect around 14% of the Australian adult population every year while Depression affects around 6%.
It is important to realise that feeling down at times is a normal part of life. Sad and upsetting events happen to everyone, but if you are feeling down or hopeless on a regular basis, you could be dealing with depression. If this sounds familiar to you, you owe it to yourself, your family and friends to become a better you. You should never give up hope even if you have tried hypnosis for depression in the past.
Symptoms of depression differ somewhat depending on the different types of depression being experienced, but there are a few general symptoms that appear in most types of depression.
These can include:
• Loss of interest in activities that were previously enjoyed
• Desire to avoid social occasions
• Feelings of guilt or worthlessness (often with no apparent logical basis)
• Changes in appetite (either overeating or loss of interest in food)
• Excessive tiredness
• Changes in the speed of movement, to the point where it’s noticeable to others
• Changes in sleeping patterns (either a reduced need for sleep or sleeping excessively)
• Suicidal thoughts.
These symptoms are also characteristic of many other conditions, which, I believe, can lead to misdiagnosis and unnecessary prescription of anti depressant medication.
