Manic Depression is an illness that involves the body, thoughts and a person?s mood. It is not just a bad mood that will pass with time or something a person can just pull themselves together from and ?get over it?. Manic depression is a disorder suffered by many people and affects the way a person eats, sleeps, how they feel about themselves, and how they think. This disorder cannot be cured without a treatment because it has to do with a person?s chemical makeup and things that have happened in their life.
Symptoms of depression include persistent sadness,
anxiousness, emptiness, feelings of hopelessness, pessimism,
guilt, helplessness, and worthlessness. Also a loss of interest or
pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed is a
common sign a person is depressed. They may be very tired and
feel a loss of energy to do everyday routines or could suffer the
opposite and not be able to sleep and become extremely restless.
Appetite changes and weight loss or weight gain is an example
of a physical change along with headaches and chronic pains.
