Do you feel sad all the time? Have you lost interest in activities that you used to enjoy? Has it started to interfere in your daily activities? Do you feel your life is meaningless?
These might be signs of depression. Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act (American Psychological Association).
According to World Health Organisation, more than 300 million people were suffering from depression worldwide in 2015, which is equivalent to 4.4% of the World’s total population. Depression is one of the most widespread mental health disorders . Unfortunately, it is largely undiagnosed and seldom treated.
A research estimates that 1 in 5 individuals living will experience some kind of depression during their lifetime. In a country of 127 million people, nearly one in four people have considered committing suicide due to either depression or anxiety or both.

Depression can be defined as persistent sadness for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. It is being more than simply unhappy or fed up for a few days. Some of the common symptoms of depression are:

  • Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness – A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation.
  • Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure.
  • Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month.
  • Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping.
  • Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves.
  • Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete.
  • Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes.
  • Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports.
  • Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things.
  • Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

Some people think depression is petty and not a genuine health condition. They are wrong – it is a real illness with real symptoms. Depression is not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together".
