Capturing a Black Hole It’s unreasonable to define something so arbitrary as depression in just a few sentences. For me, depression is a vacuum, something that pulls up everything: it takes away the good, bad, joy, sorrow, anger, etc. It affects the way you function and takes control of you. Professionals may define it by a set of symptoms and feelings. But for patients suffering with depression, it is more than just the symptoms; it can become an absence of self worth and an overwhelming feeling of loneliness despite the surprising amount of people who have it as well.
In this report I am going to assess ways in which different types of dementia affect an individual and also the individual’s family and friends. Due to the symptoms and consequences of dementia, a major impact on individual is the feeling of insecurity and the loss of confidence in themselves and their abilities. This can increase a sense of loss of control which in turn may result in the individuals doubting themselves and losing trust in their own judgements. These problems are made worse by the reaction of the people around them that are closest to them, such as friends and family and colleagues will begin to respond to them differently and not treat them in the same way as before. They may feel that they are stigmatised by this as there is a lot of false information and ideas about what dementia is like and what dementia does to people, and the individual may actually be avoided by friends and family member who fear the condition.
Depression is strong feelings of sadness and dejection. When a person is going through depression in grief, the person will always seem down. That person will never see good things that are going on. People are normally too focused on the bad thing that just happened to feel anything else. When someone loses a loved one, that person will go through depression.
Questioning the Incomprehensible Mental illness is defined as health conditions involving changes in thinking, emotion or behavior (or a combination of these) (American Psychiatric Association). There are different types of depression and they effect people differently also. With major depression working, sleeping, eating and spending time with friends and family becomes difficult to do because there is the constant feeling of hopelessness. Seeing that I have family and friends who suffer from depression, I wanted to learn more and see why people who are depressed think the way they do, what goes on inside their head to make them feel hopeless and if medication is the only way to help deal with depression even though for some people medicine doesn’t fully help them. What is the science behind depression and what makes a person’s brain chemistry without depression different from someone who suffer with depression?
Isolated can then often cause an individual to feel frustrated and act irrationally as a consequence of that frustration. Individuals in society often reach an epiphany to which they realize conflicts cannot be solved. When individuals reach this realization, they often act irrationally in an attempt to defy fate that cannot be
Furthermore, unemployment may affect one’s mental health indirectly. People will receive tremendous amount of trauma and feelings of low self-esteem if one is unemployed for a long period of time. Unemployed may develop negative mindsets toward common things in life. The longer they are unemployed, the more stress they might get from society and their family. A person under stress may experience insomia and depression that will lead to poor mental health.
Loneliness is so much more than being by yourself, or thinking you only have your self. It leads to more serious problems like depression or sadness. When you feel isolated from the world and you feel like you only have your self, your mind becomes over whelmed with feelings of hurt and abandonment. You start to question yourself and ask your self things like, “What’s wrong with me, why am I not good enough, and why can’t I just be happy?” I have depression and it’s a struggle at times. There are times when I feel like I’m alone and everyone around me becomes distant.
Many individuals in life have experienced some form of depression when they have hit a low point in their life and question whether it is worth living. Fear turns motivation and hope into discouragement and sadness. Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain that
Though some teens choose not to conform and “fit in” with the crowd. This group of teens, nonconformist, end up being directly or indirectly affected. These effects can lead to long-lasting changes in the teen’s daily life, mentally and physically.
