How to overcome depression? When there is more than one bad phase
NOT NEED a reason to be depressed
Before going into the nuances of depression, what triggers and how to overcome it, we will first understand one of the most common perceptions related to depression. When you are depressed, there is always a particular reason behind it. According to Dr. Madhu Sarin, a psychoanalyst and independent practitioner, “Under normal circumstances, you know the cause of his sadness and also how to overcome the current situation.” But when talking about depression, one is not really able to destroy the reason behind the feeling of tristeza.Le it happens that one day you wake up and find it very difficult to get out of bed.
Dr. Sarin also explains how our brain and neurological functions, our emotional health and other psychological and social factors can come together to trigger depression. When there are complications in our neurons or neurological transmitters, it is when the drug role comes into play. Emotional or psychological imbalances can often be checked with therapy and counseling. “It’s like when sometimes know the reason behind the fever, while many other times have no idea what might have decreased with fever,” said Dr. Sarin.
YOUR PAST AND YOUR COPING MECHANISM
According to Dr. Sarin, more often than not our coping mechanism is incapable of dealing with a traumatic situation or event; This is anchored in the psyche and may surface later in the form of clinical depression. Not everyone is equipped with the same set of skills to cope with a stressful or emotional event. Most people around us can be extremely sensitive, so a depressive condition can also be a combination of past events, personality and effectiveness of the coping mechanism.

How can you differentiate a mood spell changes the appearance of mild clinical depression? Dr. Achal Bhagat, Senior Consultant Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist and Founder of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals explains that depressive disorder is a condition in which melancholy (sadness) combined with anhedonia (lack of interest in Activities that were once enjoyable). If this persists for more than two weeks and also combined with feelings of despair, low self-esteem, sleep disorders and appetite, it may be a sign of the onset of clinical depression. In such situations, it is essential to seek professional help.
