When you feel depressed, it is like a cloud is hovering over your head; thoughts of happiness run away and whole world turns dark and bleak.
Do not worry, this impression is totally wrong, it only means there is something wrong in your life.
There is also a world of difference between depression (medical diagnosis, usually requiring treatment), and depressive feelings, although they can feel pretty much the same.
According to Dr. Marchand, the risk of recurrence — “relapse after full remission” — for a person who’s had one episode of depression is 50 percent. For a person with two episodes, the risk is about 70 percent. For someone with three episodes or more, the risk rises to around 90 percent.
