What is depression? By The NHS

Everyone has spells of feeling down, but depression is more than just spending a few days feeling sad or unhappy. Depression can make you feel persistently sad and down for weeks or months at a time.

While some people believe that depression is trivial or not a genuine health problem, it’s actually a real condition that affects around one in 10 people over the course of their lives. It impacts people of all genders and ages – including children. Studies show that around 4% of children in the UK between the ages of five and 16 are depressed or anxious.

With the right support and treatment, most people recover fully from depression.

Do I have depression?

Depression has a range of different symptoms, and it can affect everybody differently. The symptoms include feeling very tearful, feeling hopelessness and sadness, and losing interest in things you enjoyed before. It’s also common for people with depression to have symptoms of anxiety.

Physical symptoms happen with depression too – these can include feeling tired all the time, getting poor sleep, losing your sex drive, losing your appetite, and feeling aches and pains.

If the symptoms are mild, you might simply experience a persistent low mood. It’s common to feel stressed, sad or anxious during difficult times in your life, and a low mood can get better after a short time, rather than being a symptom of depression.

What is seasonal affective disorder (SAD)?

SAD is a type of depression that comes and goes according to the season. People with SAD have symptoms of depression or mania at roughly the same time each year.

SAD usually develops in autumn and winter, then disappears in spring and summer. In some people, the symptoms develop in spring and early summer.

The Phoenix Poem By Victoria Baltimore Prutschke

I sit in my cage every single day,

I want to get out – of this I do pray.

My emotions are flying here and there,

I truly don’t know how much more I can bear.

My tears overflow with every breath I take,

One more day – I ask, please help me to make.

His words – they sting, deep into my heart,

Sometimes it’s so bad, I wish I could part.

Deep sadness, deep pain in my soul I do feel,

Dear Angels please come and help me to heal.

Out of these ashes I know I will rise,

I will spread my wings, and far away I will fly.

I will grow, I will learn, I will do the right thing,

And the praises of my Guardian Angels –

I will proudly sing.
