There are several different types of medically recognized depression.

The most common type of depression is called Major Depression, and it occurs when symptoms interfere with the enjoyment of life or with daily functions-including work or lack of work, poor living conditions, sleep, and eating habits-for at least two weeks straight or more depending on care.

Some People experience only one episode of Major Depression in their life, while others may go through numerous recurrent episodes of the illness without knowing what is going on until they end up being hospitalized or in a mental hospital.

In comparison, People with a condition known as persistent depressive disorder -also known as dysthymia- experience a depressed mood that lasts continuously for at least two years.

People with dysthymia may experience episodes of Major Depression as well as periods of less severe symptoms.

Other common types of depression include:

Postpartum Depression, in which most of our mothers experience symptoms of major depression after giving birth. Mood impairment is much stronger, and lasts longer, than the “baby blues” — the relatively mild symptoms of depression and anxiety that many new mothers experience. Feelings of extreme sadness, anxiety, or exhaustion can make it difficult for the mother to bond with or care for her baby.

• Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), in which depression occurs in during winter, and sometimes fall, and is associated with a lack of sunlight. This depression is typically accompanied by social withdrawal, increased sleep, and weight gain.

• Major Depression with psychotic features, in which severe depression accompanies loss of touch with reality, such as delusions (false fixed beliefs) and hallucinations (hearing and seeing things other people can’t). These psychotic features can focus on a kind of theme, such as illusions of illness or poverty.

• Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, in which symptoms of depression develop a week before a woman’s period and pass after menstruation.

Some people may experience Corona Virus Depression [CVD] and may have Dipolar Disorder-or Manic Depression-which is characterized by moods that will cycle between extreme highs (mania) and lows (depression).
