Depression and Mood Disorders
Dysthymia or persistent depressive disorder, is a continuous long-term (chronic) form of depression that may seriously affect your normal daily activities, result in low self-esteem and a feeling of hopelessness and loss of productivity. These feelings can have a negative impact on your relationships, school, work and daily activities. Since these feelings generally last for years, you may feel it’s a normal part of your life.
Bipolar disorder is a mental illness marked by dramatic shifts in a person’s mood, behavior, thought, and ability to think clearly. People with bipolar experience high and low moods known as manic depression which differ from the typical ups-and-downs most people experience.
Bipolar disorder is also known as manic depression because a person’s mood can alternate between the “poles”—mania (highs) and depression (lows). The change in mood can last for hours, days, weeks, or months.
