Depression is basically a condition of low mood which greatly affects a person’s behavior, feelings and thoughts. It is anathematized by many people in the world. It is a mental illness which is not visible. According to reports, about 300 million people in the world are suffering from depression. Recently scientists have discovered that the real face of depression is not the chemical imbalance in the brain but disconnection from meaningful work, the natural world, status, and respect.
Common signs of depression to watch out for may include a constant feeling of helplessness, loss of interest in favorite things, sudden changes in appetite and sleep patterns, irritability, loss of energy, self-loathing, concentration problems and even physical problems like frequent headaches, stomach aches, and muscle pain.
