Approximately one in five people will suffer from a major clinical depression during their life time. When depression hits other symptoms are often present too and it can feel like there is no hope, no future. It can … but it doesn’t have to.
Additional symptoms of depression include worry, guilt and lack of energy to do the simplest of things. Depression is dark with deep forbidding. The major component of depression is anhedonia which literally means a lack of pleasure.

Depression can be triggered by many life events which can be large and negatively or lots of small negative events which can add up over time to trigger a depression. The darkest hour right now is before dawn.
Important : If you are suffering from depression see your doctor. Depression may be caused by an underactive thyroid gland which is treatable with prescription drugs like thyroxine.
The main cause of depression triggering events are losses. This can be loss of a job, a relationship, a death of a loved one or an overly negative outlook in life and the lack of decent future prospects.
The depression, or response to loss is perfectly normal. We all lose people, ideas, positions and securities during the course of our life. A reactive depression is our response to loss. After some time, weeks or even months we begin to feel better and we go on to make full recoveries.
A clinical depression is when we do not recover from loss and the symptoms persist and it feels like there is no way out or forward and the pleasures in life become scant or don’t seem to exist at all. This is a major depression.

Psycho Neurology of Depression
Depression is akin to one part of your brain, elevated activity in the right dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex, is associated with low moods.
