      Chronic Depression is referred to as Dysthymia in the medical field. It has been realized that this is a less sever than major chronic depression but it lasts a much longer time.

      It is also for a person with Dysthymia to also suffer from major depression at the same time swinging back and forth in moods.

      This process is referred to as double depression.

      The following are some symptons


      that you might wish to look out for: *Sleeping difficulties *Loss of ability to enjoy oneself or general loss of interest in life itself.

      *One has the feeling of worthlessness and even some guilt.

      *Extreme fatigue just simple fatigue * The process of thinking ...


      • or making decisions becomes to difficult.

        *Your appetite changes.

        *Mental and physcal sluggishness is observed more on a daily basis.

        * One of the worst is when thoughts of suicide and death creep into one’s mind.

        I found that according to National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 10.

        9 million Americans aged 18 and old are

        affected by dysthymia.

        If you have been feeling depressed lately please see your physcian or psycharists so they can evaluate you and prescribe the type of drugs and therapy that you need.

        Dysthymia is a serious but treatable disorder.

        In some cases talk therapy is a major help but at times antidepressant is necessary as well.
