At some point in their lives most people experience feelings of sadness. However, depression isn’t merely feeling sad from time to time. It’s true that feelings of sadness often accompany depression, but the difference is the persistence and severity of those feelings. Symptoms can also vary. For example, a man may show anger whereas a woman may feel worthlessness.
If you are experiencing symptoms of major depression, severe grief, bipolar disorder, or other depression symptoms, each of these disorders can be treated or at least managed with the help of a psychologist.
