What Is Major Depressive Disorder?
Major depressive disorder (MDD), commonly known as clinical depression, is a mental health condition characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and lack of interest in activities that once brought pleasure. It is much more than just feeling down or having a bad day; MDD can significantly impact a person’s daily life and lead to severe emotional and physical distress.
Just a few of the symptoms associated with MDD include:
- Persistent feelings of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness
- Difficulty sleeping or oversleeping
- Changes in appetite and weight (loss or gain)
- Loss of interest in once-enjoyed activities
- Irritability and restlessness
- Fatigue or lack of energy
- Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or self-blame
- Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
- Thoughts of death or suicide
