What Is Depression?

Most people have times when they feel low, lethargic, and feel they have lost the zest for life. Often, you can bounce back and lift yourself out of your mood very quickly. Nevertheless, for some people, these black days become weeks, which in turn become months and for some turn into years. Depression, as the author Dorothy Rowe so eloquently describes it, can be a “personal prison.” Depression is not simply feeling down it can alter the way you view yourself and others. Depression can be like walking through a hall of mirrors in a fairground, but instead of distorting your reflection, depression distorts the way you think about yourself and other people.

For most people they are able to reach out and ask for help when there are feeling down, for a person with depression getting through each day is a battle for survival. Although the person is not dying, they feel like they are, and every day is a never-ending struggle from minute to minute.

Added to this feeling, there is the sense of being isolated from others. One can obviously see the difference between feeling down and having depression.
