What is Depression?  

 

 

It is important that we can tell the difference between ‘Clinical’ Depression & ‘feeling down or low’. Everyone experiences highs & lows in their life. They are ‘normal’ emotions. The significant difference is the length of time the symptoms have been present, the severity of the symptoms and their effect on functioning (social, psychological, physical etc.)

 

Depression can be extremely debilitating and damaging. It can also have tragic consequences for those choose the path of ending their life, after having seen no hope or future.

 

You may enjoy playing the game and even enjoy training. The question you have to ask yourself is “is the majority of my day spent feeling ‘low’ or ‘down’, outside of these pleasurable moments”?

 

Depression does not always result in suicide, nor is it an illness that anyone should feel ashamed of experiencing. Depression, whilst technically considered a ‘mental illness’ does not, in any way, suggest some type of ‘madness’. Do not be swayed by pre-conceived ideas or beliefs.

Causes of Depression

Depression has often been defined as either Endogenous (depression with no discernable reason – chemically or biologically based) or Exogenous (a type of ‘reactive’ depression as a result of a life event). Whilst this appears quite ‘clear cut’ it is also obvious that there are other factors that relate to the development of a depressive illness. In fact, there is considered to be, more often than not, no specific ‘single’ cause with combinations of factors that contribute. It is best to view everything related to mental health using a ‘bio-psycho-social’ model; enabling a more thorough picture of the individual’s illness.

 

As such, the three (3) main areas for the root causes of Depression (and generally all mental health disorders & illnesses) can be covered by these areas:-

 

 

(1) Biological(physical, chemical & biological)

 

 

Theories relating to biological causes centre largely around the action of neurotransmitters within the brain. Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that pass between neurons (nerves); allowing signals to be sent from the source to the intended site (be it another nerve cell, gland or muscle). With respect to depression, the mono-amines (serotonin, norepinephrine & dopamine), are considered those most significant. Low levels of these neurotransmitters or diminished activity has been identified in those with depressive symptoms. Antidepressant medications target these neurotransmitters with the aim of increasing activity and thus relieving the symptoms. Other factors suggested such as hormonal changes, illness, light deprivation, cerebral changes through injury & dietary deficiencies have also been postulated as contributors to the development of depression. Heredity & genetic predisposition is connected with depression; given a family history of either depressive illness or other psychiatric disorder. The likelihood of developing depression is significantly increased.

 


 

(2) Psychological (psychodynamic)

 

 

Personality & coping skills established through developmental processes of the individual appear to contribute toward the capacity to develop depression. Often described as someone’s ‘resilience’, there is a strong association between life stressors and depression. Low self esteem, poor self confidence and self-defeating or distorted thinking are certainly related to depressive symptoms with individuals expressing feelings & thoughts of blame & guilt; a generalized negativity.Rejection, lack of love, overprotection, neglect & guilt/shame are ways we can be treated as children in our developing years that impact on how we see ourselves & others in later years. As such, we develop responses to situations that may be inappropriate, ‘maladaptive’ & damaging, based on these beliefs & our self esteem.


 

(3) Social (behavioural)

 

 

Child abuse (physical, emotional, sexual etc.) can contribute to the development of depression later in life, as can the effects of dysfunctional families. Those whose mothers experienced depression during the individuals early childhood, serious marital conflict, divorce &separation, death of a parent or parents, neglect or feelings of abandonment are also serious issues that may manifest in depression in adolescence &/or adulthood. The level of social & interpersonal support is vital in the maintenance of mental wellbeing and a history of isolation or a lack of this support as an adult might also been interpreted as contributors to depression.




 

Co-morbidity

 

Co-morbidity refers to the ‘co-existence’ of other disorders or symptoms along with depression. For example anxiety is often associated with depression and can result in delayed recovery, greater disability & a higher risk of suicide. Post traumatic stress disorder and depression can often co-occur, as can the dependence on alcohol &/or drugs. Another pertinent issue is the co-existence of pain and depression with statistics indicating up to 85% of people with pain, also suffering depressive symptoms. Chronic pain & depression is particularly prevalent with higher suicide risks involved.

 

Please take time to digest the information in this section on Depression in order that you might be more fully informed and aware of the seriousness & prevalence of the disorder and the warning signs & stressors that you may be confronted with at sometime during your life.

 

 

 


The Cycle of Depression

 

One of the very serious problems associated with depression is the 'cyclic' descent that can occur when it goes untreated. Nobody enjoys feeling 'depressed'; whether one is aware that it is 'clinical depression' or not is irrelevant in that the term is merely a 'diagnosis' (a means by which clinicians can communicate and treat based upon the collective symptoms applicable to a presentation; in this case, 'depression'). It is the feelings & emotions; the changes in social functioning, anxiety, agitation and constant 'negativity' that causes the pain. When you are unable or unwilling to recognise problems that exist and continue to practise 'self denial' for whatever reason, you will find a greater likelhood of consciously or unconsciously dealing with your depression in ways that might generally be considered 'unhealthy'. These may involve the use of 'drugs' or 'alcohol'; and very often do. The outcomes of these approaches only serve to make the problem worse, or create a raft of 'new ones'. Your depression, or rather the symptoms of your depression, will inevitably become more profound and debilitating. Physiologically, the substances are 'depressant' in nature & most have detrimental effects on the organs of the body itself, and psychologically, you are simply providing more 'ammunition' for, & 'confirmation' of, worthlessness & hopelessness; developing more reasons to be depressed and in some cases creating new 'negative' & 'soul destroying' situations and circumstances that intensify the level of depressive symptoms. Unless the 'cycle' is arrested, it will continue, spiralling downward, toward a level wherein lays the spectre of possible suicidality and/or 'a very long road back' to wellbeing.
