A Case Study on Depression

CLICK HERE : Expert Suggestions on Computer Based CAT : 2017 - 2018

A CASE STUDY ON DEPRESSION

The
life is a beautiful gift which
has been provided to mankind by God. In life persons
passes through many phases. it may be age factor, loss of near ones,
loss of job/ business, financial crises etc. there are many people who
can easily come out of this phases of
life but there are some people who due to not having
strong mental power and highly emotionality goes into depression.

According
to the National Institute of Mental Health, major depressive disorder
is characterized
by a combination of symptoms that interfere with a
person's ability to work, sleep, study, eat, and enjoy once-pleasurable
activities.

The case study includes two examples where the persons have suffered from depression and
survived. The case is about a lady and a boy. How they have survived from the depression.

TYPES OF DEPRESSION

Depression
is of many types. It can be post partum depression or it can be Chronic

Depression or Dysthymia or Atypical Depression, Bipolar
Depression or Manic Depression Seasonal Depression (SAD), Psychotic
Depression, Postpartum Depression.

There
are times you may feel sad, lonely, or hopeless for a few days.
But major depression -- clinical depression -- lasts
longer and is disabling. It can prevent you from functioning normally.
An episode of clinical depression may occur only once in a person's
lifetime. More often, though, it recurs
throughout a person's life.

In
addition, with major depression, one of the symptoms must be either
depressed mood or loss of interest. The symptoms should be present daily
or for most of the day or nearly daily for at
least two weeks. Also, the depressive symptoms must
cause clinically significant distress or impairment in functioning. The
symptoms cannot be due to the direct effects of a substance -- drug
abuse, medications -- or a
medical condition, such as hypothyroidism, nor occur
within two months of the loss of a loved one.

Chronic
depression, or dysthymia, is characterized by a long-term (two years or
more) depressed mood. There are
also symptoms present that are associated with major
depression but not enough for a diagnosis of major depression. Chronic
depression is less severe than major depression and typically does not
disable the person. If you have
dysthymia or chronic depression, you may also experience
one or more episodes of major depression during your lifetime.

The key symptoms of atypical depression include:

* Overeating
* Oversleeping
* Fatigue

* Extreme sensitivity to rejection
* Moods that worsen or improve in direct response to events

Regular -- or "typical" -- depression, on the other hand, tends to be marked by pervasive sadness and a
pattern of loss of appetite and difficulty fall or staying asleep.

Bipolar disorder
-- sometimes referred to as manic depression -- is a complex mood
disorder that alternates between periods of clinical depression and
times
of extreme elation or mania. There are two subtypes of
bipolar disorder: bipolar I and bipolar II.

With bipolar I disorder, patients have a history of at least one manic episode with or without major depressive episodes.


With bipolar II disorder, patients have a history of at
least one episode of major depression and at least one hypomanic (mildly
elated) episode.

Seasonal
depression, often called seasonal affective disorder or SAD, is a
depression that occurs each year at the same time. It
usually starts in the fall or winter and ends in spring or early summer.
It is more than just "the winter blues" or "cabin fever." A rare form
of SAD, known
as "summer depression," begins in late spring or early
summer and ends in fall.

With psychotic depression, delusional thoughts or other symptoms of psychosis accompany the symptoms of depression. With
psychotic depression, there's a break with reality. Patients with psychotic depression experience hallucinations and delusions.

As
many as 75% of new moms get the "baby blues." But about one in 10
moms develop a more serious condition called postpartum
depression. According to the National Institute of Mental Health,
postpartum depression is diagnosed when a new mother develops a major
depressive episode within one
month after delivery.

CASE –I

Live example of a person who have suffered from post partum depression

It is said that one out of the ten new born's mother is suffering from post partum depression. To

become a mother is the best gift a lady can have in her
life. I would like  to talk about a lady having the age of 27 years,
when she becomes mother. With the strong  desire of a baby girl, she got
a baby boy. She
accepted but in the three months time duration, she
suffers from lack of sleep, sad and happy moods together and desire to
grow at faster rate in life. She was lucky in a manner that where she
was working has a caring boss and
loving parents. The boss suggested her father to take
her to the psychiatrist and within two and half month's medications and consultation by a psychiatrist she
came back to normal life.  The support of
the family was fabulous, whether the matter of taking
cares of a baby boy or takes care of her. The case is a true and real.
The reason for her to suffering from post partum depression was high
expectation and high desire for
success, strong desire for a baby girl and to become
better than others. The best part of the post partum depression has made
her thinking not only for her but also for the women and ladies like
her. She gives advices to the women
who are expecting or planning to become mother that
never take stress and take care of own self first. The reason for that
is when the person is mentally and physically strong, one is able to
take care of the family in a better
way.

CASE –II

Live example of a person who have suffered from bipolar disorder

"LOVE IS BLIND"

The 
sentence is happening true in the case of a boy who was
having age of 22. Without his consent parents has
arranged his marriage and he never informed his parents that he loves a
girl and already applied for registration for marriage. He was a joyful
person and due to the pressure for
marriage, he lost the mental power.  He used to be sad
every time and parents has ultimately take him to tantric first but when
no change has happened they consulted a psychiatrist. By
counseling sessions and mediations
he started responding well. Same way parents have
accepted a girl whom he wants to marry. He within the time span of six
months recovered well  but also doing the job and started taking care of
family.


Conclusion

In
both the cases, one can see that when the expectations are rising so
much it leads to depression. In today's scenario every one wants to rich
fast and for that they are ready to do anything. But
money is not the only source for the person to live
happily. The more money one have, the less time for the family one can
spend. The expectations to look beautiful, wise, slim, handsome , fair,
wealthy has make the persons to go
to depression and stress.

Today,
whether a kid of 1 year or 80 year old person in some or another way
suffering from stress and in a long run it makes them either drinker,
smoker, depressed and lead to commit
suicide.  " Always expect less from life and it gives
you bulk and bulk that you have never thought of." If the person learns
to control the expectations, he can win the world.

It
is not only the matter of two
cases only. There are many women who due to monopose,
miscarriage, exams fever, having a girl child, sexual harassment, loss 
of near ones goes into depression. The scenario is highest in teen age
12-20 years where one want to
look best.

The
men also suffers when the break up, failure in business and failure in
life, divorce . they take the help of drinks and smoking and make the
health into bad part.

The
best solution
is to go for mediation , meditation , look back in life
and realize that  God has provided us so many good things in the life.
Expect less and give more.
