Depression:
Everyone feels sad on occasion, and itís perfectly normal to be upset over life experiences, such as a death in the family, a loss of a job, or a split with a romantic partner or friend. But if feelings of sadness or loss of interest in things you used to enjoy begin to interfere with daily life activities, you may be experiencing depression. Depression is accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, guilt, changes in sleeping and eating habits, social withdrawal, and sometimes thoughts of death or suicide. The treatment of depression includes the prescription of specific behavioral activities that reverse the cycle of withdrawal from people or usual activities, as well as the examination of the types of negative thoughts that become automatic when depressed.
