Vernal depression is harder than autumnalMedic's notice, that natural rhythm and the change (variation) of seasons some people affect more, other people affects less. Any life changes, no matter what they are, if they are essential to us they evoke organism reactions which affects people moods in a bad way, and this can evoke the stress, inquietude or a depression.
Different form of depressionIf the inquietude lasts too long, it becomes unhealthy, pathological inquietude which very often grow into depression. Recently, it's pretty hard to diagnose these perturbations. Now, there aren't many classical depressions. Most of them are veiled. For a human being the head hurts, as well as the back and the pain scurry all over the body.
Changes in the nature influences the depressionThe number of patients in the department of affective disorders significantly increases during the autumn and spring. These are the seasons, during which even healthy people feels differently: circadian rhythm (fluctuations, related to the change of the day and night) changes evoke mood variations. These changes are more expressed to the people with depression. Therefore, depression flare-up increases in the autumn and spring. In the spring it is felt more than in the autumn, therefore the vernal depression is harder.
People are part of the nature, that's why we can not disregard the changes in the nature. We are affected by various magnetic fields, storms and weather conditions. There are less mood variations during the winter and summer, because the changes in the nature are insignificant.
Attention of a close people is very important to a patient, who is suffering from depressionDepression is a chronic perturbation. People, to whom the medicines are prescribed think, that they will be for the entire life. However, to some patient it is enough to take medicines for few months or few years, to other patient the disease may recur: it happens when a person again experiences a stressful situation or life changes after a longer time period without usage of antidepressants.
For some people, to keep up the mood's equilibrium, small, supportive drug doses from depression are needed all their life.
Other matter for patients with depression is that relatives, neighbors and associates do not understand them.
To a person, who is suffering from depression, the support from relatives is eminently important. Not the pampering, but understanding and support.
People are afraid of their disease, they are afraid of antidepressants, because they believe that after including them to the psychiatry credit because of the depression people around them will start to think they have mental disorder or that that they are mentally disabled.
In the United States of America about 70% of the population is taking antidepressants.
Furthermore, using antidepressants people are afraid of getting addict to them. It is observed, that people who are addicted to alcohol, after prescribing the treatment with the antidepressants they get rid of their addiction. It's called symptomatic alcoholization. It's sort of self treatment. Antidepressants do not evoke addiction even if you use them for a long time, organism do not get used to them.
Most effective - complex treatmentDepression is to be treated in complex: together with the medicament treatment the relaxation occupation is applied, as well as art, music and drama therapeutics. Currently, very popular is psychotherapy. Psychiatrist psychotherapist O. Gabbard wrote that depression's treatment applying the psychotherapy and medicament treatment is twice more effective. Communicating with the patient we have something to correct, explain, or to help, but in no way to give any advices, any life formula.
Depression attacks after a crisisPeople are affected and by various crisis. Mostly it is felt between the people of higher quarters, like businessmen. Critical emotion changes occur during the time of critical business and life changes. Depression mostly occurs after the emotion crisis is over. Then the number of people with depression increases.
During the crisis people mobilize, they are looking for a ways how to avoid it. When the tension goes down, man remains with himself, with his minds. Then the depression occurs.
