Depression as a Disease

in Hive Learnerslast year

A lot of diseases have been dealing with mankind brutally, and it is really alarming that cure to some of these afflictions are yet to be found.


I don't really know how to put this down, but from my very own perspective one of most alarming disease presently on earth is "depression".

In psychotherapy and psychiatry, depression is a state of mind producing serious, long-term lowering of enjoyment of life or inability to visualize a happy future.

Or it is also a period of unhappiness or low morale which lasts longer than several weeks and may include ideation of self-inflicted injury or suicide.

To me really depression is worst than what we call "disease", if one take a deeper consideration of depression and cases of it, you will definitely see what it really is.

It takes away one's happiness and leaves no single space for happiness in one's soul, most youths of this present generation are potential victims of depression and some are already in their worst phase of life because of this depression.

"Traumatic or stressful events, such as physical or sexual abuse, the death or loss of a loved one, a difficult relationship, or financial problems" are causes of depression.

The major cause of depression in this present generation is as a result of love and financial instability, and most people that suffer from depression are because of these reasons.

It so funny how financial instability and finding love works hand in hand with causing depression, because in times like this love isn't about how one feel is about how much you've got to spend.

Depression kills, and it does slowly and it comes along with pain and trauma. People going through it are really suffering and when I say suffering I mean big time suffering, I've been there before and I can relate.

If I have an opportunity to create a cure to one disease then it definitely have to be a cure to depression.

Depression is real, stay around your friends and loved one, check up on them ask about their welfare listen to them when they need to speak, show them love comfort and good reception whenever they need you around, you might be their first step to recovery.

Depression is indeed a slow killer. One some might never see coming until they are deep in it. And the sad thing is that it does not show on the face, people smile and go about their lives even with depression. This is why we should be careful in the way we deal with people, we can never truly know what anyone is going through.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

Many people have died from depression, and it seems that people are unaware of the fact that depression kills more quickly if necessary precautions aren't done.

You are right! Psychological diseases like depression can ruin a person. And it can be triggered by lot's of other psychological diseases.
