DEPRESSION IS NO LAUGHING MATTER.
DEPRESSION IS THE “COMMON COLD” OF PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS THAT CAN EXACERBATE INTO A FEELING OF MALAISE, MUSCLE ACHES, PAINS, A STUFFY HEAD AND EVEN DEATH.
There are many mood disorders. They fall under the categories of :
BiPolar and Related Disorders
Under these umbrellas of mood disorders falls disorders that are chemical disorders of the brain, situational syndromes and character-logical problems, and ALL exacerbate depression or are exacerbated by depression.
CHEMISTRY, MY DEAR WATSON
A clinical depression is defined not only by symptomology, that is what we see and what we feel, but also what we cannot see, and that is inside the brain. The brain is a miraculous conundrum. It allows us to think beyond its limitations and breathe without requesting it to do so, but it also can cause us to have a chemical depression.
Certain neurochemicals work conjointly in each nerve cell to make a perfect recipe, but when something goes awry, the recipe can flop just like a cake in the oven. However, it is much more important than a cake that is supposed to be a pound cake and turns out to be an upside down cake. Lack of chemicals going to the right place at the right time can cause depression and ongoing, can wreck havoc in the brain long term. Sometimes more chemicals are needed to put the brain chemistry back on track.
In part two of this post, I will cover situational depression. You may look forward to at least two more posts in the series of depression.
