Why is depression usually seen as a mental illness and rarely as a realization that life is a tragedy?

The more often and/or the longer you have depressions, the more likely it is to become chronic.And in that case, you have no choice: it has changed to something that you no longer have control over, and where therapy does not help because it is no longer going to be actually depressed.

Actually, you become depressed when you are in a situation for too long that you cannot escape, but that does play a very large and/or important role in your life.For example: If you are being bullied at work, if you are a child and your parents treat you badly.

Or you will be depressed when you are in a situation for too long where you are not aware that it is bad for you. In that case, the depression is an indication of this, and the depression then works as a reason to start working on yourself, face the situation, and tackle why it is bad for you. This can go for example to a bad marriage, or a job where you can actually work over OR under you.

Especially in the first situation, it often happens that depressions become a recurring thing, and that increases the chances of it becoming chronic.

Chronic depression is indeed a serious disease, which can work very crippling.Medications can work, but do not always work. For me they work happily very well, but I also know people for whom medications do nothing. That’s terrible.

And to do that with 芒 鈧?艙yes well, life is for nobody a ciny, 芒 鈧?is really too easy thought.

I could, in good times, without medications.But if something went wrong, I spied down. And fast. And hard. And I did not do that myself. I could go from hahaha and laugh and sociable and it goes so well to oh I want doooooooooood in three days. So now I can no longer do without medicines, therefore. Especially because my physical condition makes life difficult for me.

Chronic depression is a hell on earth.

Because everyone is experiencing tragic things, but a minority suffers from disarranged neurotransmitters and a changed brain through longer depressions.

It is that we do not perform brain punctures, but then you could measure these neurotransmitters and objectively show a deviation.This is very invasive, especially if you can also get the correct diagnosis with a thorough history.

Depression is a disease.It trivialized the suffering of someone who suffers here to call it 芒 鈧?虄life is a tragedie芒 鈧劉. Certainly against depressive patients this is not handy to say. It increases the distance between you and the patient and it will only feel isolated further. (Depressive people are usually catastrophic thinkers and will always take the worst interpretation of your words)

These are really two separate cases.

Depression, both a collective name for a number of related conditions and the short term we use for what is formally called Major Depressive Disorder, is quite a condition.I deliberately avoid the word mental illness, because I think it is a disease like any other.

Some, even many people who have (had) depression, have no negative worldview.They have no clearly demonstrable cause, or they get depression after a specific event (postnatal depression for example).

There are also many people with a negative worldview that have no depression.There may well be a correlation (as there is a correlation between each set of two variables), but I think that it will prove quite meaningless.

Depression is therefore certainly not (always) the 芒 鈧?艙realization that life is a tragedy is芒 鈧? and 芒 鈧?艙realizing that life is a tragedy is芒 鈧?certainly does not always result in depression.

Why is depression usually seen as a mental illness and rarely as a realization that life is a tragedy?

Probably because both are not correct.The first is a historically erroneous diagnosis of symptoms, while the second is a Shakespearian philosophical thought.

The first is not correct, because depression can have various causes.So it is not 1 disease picture/cause. In addition, it is almost never attributable to a mental abnormality, but more often to a physical (chemical imbalance).

That life may seem a tragedy (emphasis on corpses), depends on the spectator and the 芒 鈧?虄leading Voorwerp芒 鈧劉.

Take my situation now.I have been dismissed by bankruptcy, uncertain future, until today no salary on my account and still no new contract.

Damn huh?!Yes, but I do not see my situation as a tragedisch. Not for me. We are two-earning, the contract is coming and because I am a reasonably responsible parent, I have put money on the side in recent months.

Yet this same situation is a tragedy for others.Collega芒 鈧劉 s who have just bought a house, no view on a new contract, no money set aside because they suddenly had a lot of spending the past time. Then it becomes a different story.

HOWEVER, that’s not 芒 鈧?虄Life 芒 鈧劉, but YOU live.It always depends on person to person. One who is depressed often has the feeling of not having control at all (especially not about the 芒 鈧?虄self 芒 鈧劉). Everything that happens seems to be a accumulation of negative tenor. But, this sometimes comes through 芒 鈧?虄confirmation Biased芒 鈧劉 thoughts by lack of good tools to cope with change and sometimes by a bad self image. It can also, that due to lack of vitamins (often vitamin E) the brain reacts differently to signals and processing causes negative reflection.

Sadder but wiser, we learned earlier.Depressive people are bleak, but that’s because they make a very realistic estimation of themselves, their environment, the world-hand so than the non-depressant, realists are it.

But that is the optimistic variant.After all, for depressive people life is a tragedy-because (partly) that vision they are depressed. But not for everyone, life is a tragedy. There are those who have a quirk-blessed are the simplicity of spirit? Or, life could be fun for less simplicity too….

The thesis that life is a tragedy but that non-depressor do not yet realize offers M.I. benefits to non-depressor which they would like to retain.A shortage of awareness, so crazy yet. Too much awareness: the suffering begins. In between: Then you have the best of both worlds.

Incidentally: the notion of mental illness is M.I. outdated-from the time we had a spirit, I think. We are now talking about psychological or psychiatric problems and the spirit, the soul is a little out of sight disappeared.That might be a bit of a tragedy.

Finally, most of the depressions can be dealt with, in any case making a lot more liveable.But perhaps that is at the expense of realization. Or is there another realization. Less sad, equally wise.

There is confusion about this notion.In The medical world, depression is a brain disease that has no relation to living conditions. A person with a Major Depressive Disorder can therefore become severely depressed while his life is fantastic at that time. There is of course no abnormal mood. However, depression can also be caused by living conditions, but that is a normal reaction of the mind. Finally, there is still the existential depression. These people have a genetic predisposition to be bleak. That is permanent and not a disease, but a predisposition. The most common form is the neurotic depression that is caused by a personality disorder. These people become depressed because of certain triggers, which they are vulnerable to as a person. As a rule, you can guide this as a psychologist. Depression is a collection of different notions.
