Major Depressive Disorder is a severe form of depression. Those with major depression experience symptoms most of every day, and those symptoms can last for weeks or months. Some people have a single major depressive episode. Others will experience episodes throughout their lives. Major depression can interfere with your relationships or daily activities.
Bipolar Disorder is a type of depression that causes extreme mood swings that range from emotional highs known as mania and the low points of depression. Those with bipolar disorder may experience these episodes multiple times each year with minor emotional symptoms between episodes.
Depression is classified asPersistent Depressive Disorder if it lasts for two years or more. Persistent depression is also known as chronic depression. While not as debilitating or intense as major depression, it can still cause difficulties in your relationships and performing daily tasks.
When major depressive disorder includes psychosis, it is known as Psychotic Depression. Psychosis is a transient mental state where the patient experiences delusions and hallucinations. People with psychotic depression are at a greater risk of harming themselves.
Most new mothers experience some degree of mood swings or 'baby blues' that last up to two weeks following the birth of their child. Other women experience a more serious form known as Postpartum Depression. While it is a complication of birth, it can interfere with the natural process of bonding with your baby.
Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder is a more extreme version of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) that causes the patient to experience extreme mood shifts that can interfere with daily life and damage their relationships. The condition has both physical and emotional symptoms and it is common for these patients to also suffer from depression and anxiety.
Situational Depression, also known as reactive depression, is an adjustment disorder that occurs in response to a traumatic event or series of events. It usually affects one in the short term, but it does affect how you adjust to normal life following an event.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is also known as Seasonal Depression. The depressive state is related to the changing of the seasons and normally will occur at the same time every year. Symptoms begin in the fall and continue through the winter.
When you are depressed, it seems like everything is falling apart. With Atypical Depression, your mood can be temporarily lifted in response to positive stimulation. Your depression may interfere with daily living, but it can be turned around for a short time before the depression sinks in again.
