What Is Depression?

Feeling sad from time to time, especially following events of loss or hardship, is completely normal. But sometimes, feelings of sadness can become persistent and overwhelming, morphing from normal sadness into depression. Depression is defined as a mood disorder that is most often characterized by feelings of persistent sadness and a loss of interest in activities or relationships. Depression impacts how you think and how you behave and can lead to various physical and emotional problems. In some cases, depression can even be dangerous as it can lead to feelings of self-harm and suicide in serious cases.

What Are the Symptoms of Depression?

Depression is characterized by a wide range of symptoms. Because symptoms may look different from person to person, it’s important to talk to your doctor or mental health professional if you think that you may be suffering from depression. Some of the common symptoms of depression include: 

  • Feeling sad, hopeless, or empty
  • Frequent and uncontrollable crying
  • Outbursts of anger or irritability
  • Loss of interest in most things, including things that you once loved doing
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Reduced appetite and weight loss or increased appetite and weight gain
  • Feeling restless and anxious
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Feeling worthless
  • Difficulty thinking and concentrating
  • Physical symptoms that can’t be explained otherwise, such as gastrointestinal discomfort, headaches, and backaches

Sometimes, depression is experienced alongside other physical or mental health complications, such as anxiety. A skilled therapist can help you understand how these issues impact one another and assist you in developing a personalized treatment or medication plan that addresses your unique circumstances.

What Are the Treatment Options for Depression?

If you are suffering from depression, getting help as soon as possible is critical. Depression can be life-threatening at worst and can be disruptive to your daily activities at best. Depression may impact your ability to work productively, take care of your health, and remain in healthy relationships. If you think that you have depression, a professional can help you to understand the treatment options that may be available to you.

In mild cases, making lifestyle changes is enough to manage depression. This might include changing your diet or exercising more. Engaging in healthy activities, such as positive social experiences, and giving up unhealthy activities—such as consuming alcohol—can have a productive effect on your depression. Services such as talk therapy and nutritional counseling can be very effective in helping patients reach these goals.

If lifestyle changes and talk therapy are not enough to manage depression, a psychiatrist may also prescribe medication to treat your symptoms.

TMS for Treating Depression

In some cases, talk therapy and medication are not enough to manage depression effectively. Depression that is severe or resistant to medication may be the result of major depressive disorder (MDD). For patients coping with MDD, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be a highly effective therapy. TMS involves using electromagnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain that may be impacted by depression. TMS is non-invasive, drug-free, and painless. CNSL is a leader in offering this innovative therapy to patients throughout Georgia in need of relief from serious depression, as well as conditions like anxiety and PTSD.
