The most common mental disorder worldwide. Millions of people have struggled with this illness – and millions of others still do. Depression is often belittled and considered a weakness. However, it is more than that. Depression is not simply someone feeling sad for an while – it’s about being sad constantly. Anything can trigger depression. A traumatic life event or the loss of employment could send you in a spiral of negative thinking.
A mild depression can often not be spotted looking in from the outside. It starts with a certain sadness that just does not go away. Some feel lethargic and tired all the time. One of the main symptoms of depression is the fact that you stop enjoying things you previously enjoyed – such as socialising. A mild depression could interfere with your work for example as it will lead to you suffering with motivational issues.
Severe depression on the other had can be a big impact on your life. Many people who suffer with depression are not able to go to work or school, sleeping suffers due to severe depression – and in some cases, you tend to have feelings of worthlessness. Severe depression is simply debilitating and often, it could lead to severe chances of harming yourself.
How It Affects Your Brain:
Depression could be due to a variety of reasons, but they all cause your brain you be depleted in serotonin. Serotonin is a natural chemical that occurs in your brain – and it regulates the happiness levels in your brain. If you’re lacking in it – you will feel a prolonged period of sadness.
Depression luckily is treatable through private mental health care. One way to treat a depression is through the use of medication. SSRI’s(Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhabitors) can help you regulate your serotonin. Therapy can also help.
Another very common illness under the population is anxiety. Anxiety is often misquoted as just fear or weakness. However, anxiety is not fear or weakness – it is severely debilitating fear that could be terrifying if people find it hard to control their worries. Their feelings of anxiety are more constant and can often affect their daily lives.
Anxiety can come in a variety of shapes. That is why it is important that you do make an appointment with a doctor as soon as possible – if you experience the following symptoms:
- a sense of dread
- feeling constantly “on edge”
- difficulty concentrating
These symptoms are very common in other illnesses, but a combination of these symptoms could indicate anxiety .
How it affects your brain
Anxiety is believed to be an issue within your amygdala. The amygdala structure deep in the brain, shaped a bit like an almond, that is believed to be the hub where parts of the brain communicate. The amygdala primarily processes incoming sensory signals and interprets these messages, it’s good at telling your brain that there is danger or a threat is present. If the amygdala is stimulated easily it can signal your brain, telling it that something threatening is about to happen; this is thought to contribute to anxiety.
Private mental health care is the best option in that case. Therapy in order to find ways to cope with threatening behaviour could be the answer for your anxiety. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy could be the right treatment for you. By understanding your behaviour and thinking process – you could make changes in order to learn how to stop anxious feelings.
