Chronic depression is also called dysthymic disorder or Dysthymia.  This disease can be serious, although not as serious as attacks with major depression.  Many people don’t even realize that someone they know is burdened with Chronic Depression.  Usually someone with this disease can live a regular life.  They go to work or school and go about their day to day lives without as much as causing a ripple in the water.  Of course it’s invisible to the outside world because the damage from this illness are on the inside.  There are both physical and mental results from this disease.

Tremors, dizziness, fever are not the results of chronic depression.  A rash won’t break out on your body.  However, a victim of this illness may feel helplessness, worthlessness and hopelessness.  Sleeping disorders such as nightmares and insomnia may develop.  This illness can leave the victim with a constant sad or empty feeling that threatens to consume them .  Typically the afflicted can also experience episodes of considering death or suicide .  Usually people with chronic depression do a good job of hiding these signs. When mental illness exists you have to look very closely for signs and symptoms. They’re not always clear .

When you are approaching an illness such as Chronic Depression there are a few major options for treatment.  One of the most popular approaches is Psychotherapy.  You confront the mental ailment with a mental solution.  The patient can find a positive outlook, with Psychotherapy, with the help of a doctor who attempts to determine the cause of the depression.  Anti-Depressants that help to stem the spread or worsening of the condition are another option.  In many cases the answer is to utilize both options to bring about a positive result.  The patient may not yet have Major Depression, but Chronic Depression can lead there.  Therefore, as in with any illness, early detection of the illness cannot be underestimated.

When Chronic Depression cause problems in day to day life, it has become a problem.  It’s really time to act when employment or other outside activities begin to suffer.  Those who suffer from Chronic Depression are not ”nuts” or mentally insane.  They have problems that need to be addressed and approached with care and support.  Everyone is vulnerable to the chance of facing this illness.  Therefore, knowing what it is may one day assist you in facing it personally for yourself or for someone you love. Using hypnosis will have a powerful fast effect.
