What does the term "clinical depression" mean?
Depression is in ranges of seriousness from mild, temporary episodes of sadness to severe and persistent depression. However, clinical depression is a more-severe form of depressive disorder. It is also known as major depression or major depressive disorder. It isn't the same as everyday depression which is caused by a loss, such as the death of a loved one. A medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder can cause depression.
Signs and symptoms of clinical depression include the following symptoms:
• Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or even hopelessness.
• Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration over small matters that would not usually bother you.
• Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all of your normal activities, such as: sex; hobbies or; sports.
• Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping way too much.
• Tiredness, lethargy and lack of energy, so even small tasks seem daunting.
• A reduction in appetite and weight loss.
• Anxiety, agitation or not being able to concentrate via restlessness.
• A slowing of the thinking, speaking or lethargic body movements.
• Feelings of worthlessness or unreasonable guilt and fixating on past failures or self-blame.
• Trouble thinking, a lack of concentration, making decisions and remembering things.
• Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide. All can lead to Residual Risk Suicide.
• Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches from lethargy and sleepless nights.
All these symptoms are usually severe enough to cause you noticeable problems in your relationships with friends, relatives and sexual partners or even in day-to-day activities, such as work, school or your social activities.
Clinical depression can affect people from any age group. And that does include children. However, clinical depression symptoms, even if severe, usually improve with psychological counseling, antidepressant medications or using a combination of the two different types of therapy.
When left untreated, depression can have serious consequences.
If left untreated, depression can have serious and sometimes long-term consequences that can affect every aspect of your life. This is due to the anxiety effect in thoughtfulness where the thoughts have to be alleviated in logical thinking via Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Fortunately, depression is easily treatable. By getting help and following your treatment plan, you can prevent these complications. The earlier you receive treatment the less you will think of symptomatic thoughts that lower the facial structure into a depressive or anxious stance. It forms a Facial Conformity Disorder that shapes the facial Peripheral nerves into depression. This can also form from anxiety and restlessness.
Having thoughts of death and suicide are symptoms of depression and form Residual Risk Suicide. So if depression is left untreated, these anxious thoughts from the brain’s Sympathetic nerve can get worse. Sometimes, you or a friend might feel like suicide is the only way out, the only way to escape the anxious pain where you Rest and Digest in the brain’s Parasympathetic nerve. This isn’t true if you seek help as soon as possible. There are many effective treatments to reduce depression symptoms and help you to get better. Remember, these terrible emotional feelings and their anxious thoughts are not constant and will pass if you seek help from a Counsellor. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, then please get them or you help immediately.
Depression symptoms rarely go away if untreated — in fact, they tend to become worse. Often, to alleviate the symptoms, people turn to self-medicating with illegal substances. Combining drugs and alcohol with depression is a dangerous mix and this can increase the risk for Residual Risk Suicide and further your depression. What you actually need is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy if your thoughts of anxiousness are getting the better of you. Anxious feelings are not necessarily the same but just as harmful because of the Facial Conformity Disorder. This is where the facial structure forms into a stance of anxiety depressive disorder. This can affect the Medulla Oblongata in the body/brain barrier where the Peripheral nerves are affected by the facial structure causing a clinical depression stance.
There is another way that some types of people try to cope with depression. That is by self-injuring or inflicting pain upon themselves with methods like overdosing (in a cry for help), cutting and or burning themselves. While some people don’t intend to deliberately harm themselves with these suicidal behaviours, serious or life-threatening injuries and accidental deaths can result from afflicting yourself like this.
When people are feeling angry from anxiety depression or really bad about themselves due to hopelessness, they are less likely to take care of themselves and think about the consequences of what their actions can cause. Depressed individuals may put themselves in risky situations, with potentially dangerous consequences. Examples are driving drunk or unprotected sex.
Poor School/College/University Performance.
If left untreated depression can make it very difficult to go to lessons and complete assignments. That’s because depression diminishes one’s ability to concentrate, remember things and make decisions because of the Medulla Oblongata were thoughts and speech occur. For some people, even getting out of bed requires extra effort due to the Vagus nerve in this area of the body/brain barrier. That’s why it’s important to get help before the symptoms get worse and start interfering with schooling and other aspects of one’s life.
Consider how your relationships suffer when you’re stressed out from Sympathetic nerve anxiety depression. You might lash out at loved ones, stop going to social events or just want to be left alone in Parasympathetic nerve Ignorance. The same thing can happen with untreated depression. But, except that it’s worse, as depressions symptoms are more severe. Depression leaves people drained of feeling emotionally, mentally and physically. And so it becomes hard to be there for friends and family.
Depression can become an unhealthy cycle in a Facial Conformity Disorder via the Medulla Oblongata. The is where the body/brain barrier forms a facial stance of depression. People with depression need to take good care of themselves to feel better, but because of the symptoms, they are unable to sleep. They may even sleep too much, but don’t want to eat and have no interest in exercise. Because they are unable or unwilling to do these things, the depression worsens and health suffers in the facial structures peripheral nerves. When we don’t take care of ourselves it can leave us vulnerable to other illnesses.
So remember, depression is very treatable via Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and or medication. So, all of these dangerous consequences of untreated depression can be avoided in the facial structure and the Medulla Oblongata where the Sympathetic, Parasympathetic and Vagus nerves are.
