We often use the expression ‘I feel depressed’ when we’re feeling sad or miserable. Usually, these feelings pass in due course. But, if the feelings are interfering with your life and don't go away after a couple of weeks, or if they come back, over and over again, it could be a sign that you're depressed in the medical sense of the term.
Major depression (clinical depression) can be life-threatening, because it can make you feel suicidal or lose the will to live. Whether mild or severe, depression needs to be treated at the earliest to avoid unnecessary suffering.

Anxiety: People who are depressed often have anxiety as well – the two problems often occur together, and each can make the other worse. If you are feeling anxious, your mind may be full of busy, repetitive thoughts, which makes it hard to concentrate, relax, or sleep. You may have physical symptoms, such as headaches, aching muscles, sweating and dizziness.
Psychotic experiences: If you are severely depressed you may start to have experiences or thoughts that others around you do not share. For example, you may hear voices, see visions, believe that you are evil, or are influencing events in a way that is harmful to others.
Suicidal thoughts: You may feel that life is not worth living and start thinking about ways to end your life. Thoughts like these may seem difficult to control and can be very frightening. If you feel that you may harm yourself, call Naveen Hospital Hotline at 9843460660 immediately.
