An illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts and affects the way a person eats, sleeps, and the way one thinks about self or others. A Depressive Disorder is not the same as a passing “Blue Mood”. It is not a sign of a personal weakness or a condition that can be wished away. People with a depressive disease cannot merely “pull themselves together” and get better. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years. Appropriate treatment, however, can help most people with Depression.
