REBLOG: I just had to share this very informative post by “Clinical Depression 5” for most types of depression and what to look for in each one of them. Great read!
Depression doesn’t come in one form, in fact it is possible to be diagnosed with more than one type. E.g. major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Many people report feeling different intensities of depression and wonder what type of depression they are suffering from. A doctor is the best person to diagnose the kind of depression being experienced.
These types of depression range in duration and differ in causes. A normally healthy woman may be excited about her pregnancy and be surprised by feeling blue because of postpartum depression. In another major change of life, women may experience depression during the stages of menopause; many women dismiss the symptoms of depression as being a normal part of aging.
