What is Depression?
Depression includes many disorders that can disrupt how a person thinks, feels, and acts, such as anxiety and item-specific phobias. While its effects have proven to be debilitating if left untreated, the good news is that depression symptoms not only can be treated but minimized with therapy and medication as needed. Here’s how it works.
What Are The Common Symptoms of Depression?
Signs of Depression in Men
Depression symptoms and warning signs can vary in men and women. Men also learn to use different coping skills — both healthy and not — than women. We are not sure why men and women can experience depression in a different way. It probably involves several factors, like hormones, brain chemistry, and life experiences.
Like women suffering from depression, men experiencing depression may:
- Have feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or emptiness
- Feel very tired
- Have trouble sleeping or sleep more than normal
- Not get satisfaction from activities once enjoyable
And there could be other behavioral signs of depression in men that are not recognized, including:
- Escapist behavior: Devoting considerable time at their job or on sports
- Physical symptoms: headaches, digestive trouble, and pain
- Trouble with drug use or alcohol
- Controlling, abusive, abhorrent, or violent behavior
- Irritability or unacceptable anger
- Risky behavior, like reckless driving
- Problems controlling their temper or arguing unnecessarily
How Are Depression Symptoms Different For Women?
Just as men and women experience biological and physical differences, there are also psychological differences and disparities in symptoms related to depression.
- Women will more likely think deeply if they are depressed
- Men suffering depression are more prone to abusing alcohol, drugs, and other substances
- Women can respond inversely to stressful life experiences
- A man’s symptoms of depression can be difficult for someone to recognize
- Women are more susceptible than men to suffer from depression and an eating disorder at the same time
- Both genders might react in a different way to antidepressants
- Men are more susceptible to committing suicide
What Causes Depression?
Science and medicine have yet to root out the exact causes of depression but the search continues. Like many mental health disorders, a range of factors might be involved, including:
- Biological differences. Someone with depression appears to have physical differences in their brains. The importance of these changes is still unclear but may ultimately help determine causes.
- Brain chemistry. Neurotransmitters are naturally transpiring brain chemicals that probably play a part in depression. Recent studies indicate that variations in the effect and function of neurotransmitters and their normal interaction with neurocircuits engaged in keeping mood stability can play a big role in depression and how it is treated.
- Variations in the body’s surplus of hormones can be involved in affecting or triggering depression. Hormone changes can happen with pregnancy and through the weeks or months following delivery and due to thyroid trouble, menopause, or any other conditions.
- Inherited traits. Depression is more likely in people with blood relatives who also have the condition. Researchers are attempting to locate genes that could be involved in producing depression.
