Depression is NOT sadness. Depression means a lack of the ability to control one's own emotions, feelings and thoughts. In our brains,our desire to stay happy, fit and motivated is converted to instructions by a group of chemicals called neurotransmitters. When these do not function at an optimal level, our desires and wishes tend to be lost, and the brain begins to function almost autonomously generating unwanted thoughts, emotions and feelings.
This results in feeling unreasonably sad, unhappy, or dull; worrying too much about trivial things, events or situations unlikely to happen; or thinking excessively about the past/present or future. Often the content of thoughts is influenced pessimistically and one begins to feel less competent, less confident, focusing unduly on the negatives in life, job and/or relationships. Irritation and anger towards close/loved ones tends to push them away which further increases the feeling of being alone, lonely and without support. Untreated, the illness worsens and tends to cause restlessness, anxiety, helplessness, and hopelessness, further causing the emergence of deathwish and suicidal thoughts.
