Depression comes in many forms and can be a brief experience following a negative life experience or it can be a recurring biological illness that has no clear why. People who don’t experience persistent problems with depression have a hard time understanding those that do. The former is always asking the latter why do they feel that way, when in fact they really don’t know. Those that experience persistent recurrent problems with depression are classified in the medical world as major depressive disorder, recurrent. They additionally can be described as mild, moderate or severe. By using strict criteria, researchers around the world can more easily agree on the same populations to compare data and findings. Major Depressive Disorder or MDD is extremely common, with a 16.2% lifetime prevalence in the adult population (1). MDD creates a variety of negative feelings in the person affected. These include sadness, guilt, worthlessness, anger, confusion, memory loss, hopelessness and anxiety.
Because depression is so common and widely experienced there are countless songs, poems, books, plays and movies written about and depicting it. I’m particularly moved by the song “l’m Stuck in My Own Hell” by Silence and Sound. Those who have to deal with recurrent depression will appreciate this song and lyrics.
Access to “I’m Stuck in My Own Hell” go to spotify or Itunes and look for Silence and Sound, Animals EP.

I’m committed to providing every opportunity for patients to get the help they need to overcome this hell they often experience with major depressive disorder.
