Let us look at PROBLEM SOLVING
When people get depressed, they find it more difficult to solve problems.
Sometimes this means an inability to deal with the problems that started the
depression in the first place, but often it spreads to difficulty dealing with many
of the common problems that occur in daily life.
Why does this happen? There are several reasons:
• Solving problems requires energy – and as depression worsens,
energy levels sink.
• Depression causes problems with concentration, memory, and
decision-making – and these are all valuable skills to have when
solving a problem!
• Everyday problems take a back seat to a bigger problem: The
Depression. Often people become very concerned about their mood
problem, and put aside other issues in their lives.
• Loss of confidence. Remember the effects of negative thinking? If
you think you can‟t do it, it‟s not worth it, it won‟t work anyway – it is
less likely that you will feel confident enough to try.
When you consider these factors, it is no great surprise that problems aren‟t
getting solved and are piling up. What can be done? A good place to start is
to remind yourself that your problem-solving ability is not as good as it usually
is – so go easy on yourself! This is a normal symptom of depression, and
can get better

What is Depression ?
Depression is a clinical condition just as real as a cold or flu. The key to understanding whether someone has depression or a bad case of the blues is knowing the severity and frequency of the feelings or symptoms. Treatment for depression varies widely from person to person, but there are some approaches that seem to work more often than others. With the right treatments, you may be able to minimize the symptoms of depression and reduce the impact of depression on the quality of your life.
Suffering from depression means more than just dealing with a bad week or even a bad month. Depression is a weakening condition that can make it impossible for you to enjoy your daily existence. If you are plagued with feelings of overwhelming sadness, loneliness, worthlessness, and cannot imagine that things will get any better, then you may be suffering from depression.
