What is Depression?

Feeling low is a normal reaction to loss and suffering, and everyone feels sad sometimes. Depression is often used in everyday talk to describe feeling low, however, depression is often more chronic (long term) and severe (in intensity) than what is implied in our general day to day language. In some cases, people believe they have no reason to feel low, and try to push the feelings away but also feel guilty for having them; causing a secondary distress. Low feelings are a common and natural part of living. However, if this feeling lasts for weeks or months, and begins to interfere with your ability to enjoy life and function in day to day activities, it might be worth thinking about professional support for depression.
