Psychology Research Paper - Depression

            Depression is not only a state of being sad, it is a disease that conquers the ability to feel emotion. Depression not only involves the mind, it also involves the body and its thought patterns. In different cultures some people complain of excessive headaches and extreme pain; this is an identification for depression. Depression can be hereditary or it can follow external events or can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Depression affects twenty percent of all Americans, some without even knowing it. Depression is not a disease that only influences adolescence, but it also influences every human being to become prone to depression. There are three major forms of depression, which are Major depression, Bipolar Depression and Dysthymic Depression. What I find interesting about depression is that women are three times more likely to become depressed than men, however men are five times more likely to commit suicide when depressed. Some think that women are not equal to men, therefore that makes them more susceptible to depression. Men are more subject to keep their emotions bottled up inside of them because of their role in society. Society does play a major role in depression, in addition, they have these pre-conceived notions about what males should do and what females should do in life. .
             Major Depression is the most severe case of depression that there is. The symptoms for Major Depression are just like any other type of depression. To be Majorly Depressed you do not have to have been hospitalized or medicated. For example: I can use a friend who I have known for over a decade who was at one point of time, all happy and fueling with a lot of emotion. However, based on certain experiences and occurrences in her life, that same funny and energetic person turned almost into an emotionless zombie. Lots of people get depression confused with extreme sadness. Depression is not a term just to be thrown around; it is a severe state of being.
