Pain and depression are the two sides of the same coin. You can only sympathize with the condition but can never feel it. It is quite difficult to judge whether it was a painful situation that led to the whole state of depression or was it the state of depression that is causing all the pain. One would be surprised to check out the statistics, that there are about 75% of the populations who suffer from depression. Depression is a state of mind that can happen due to certain incident in life or it may be a syndrome since birth. Sometimes it gets a little difficult to find out the different symptoms of pain or depression and treatment of one could lead to identifying the symptoms of the other. But the most important question that still needs to be answered is how to overcome depression.
If you want to know how to get over depression it is very important that you find out what are the causes that led to depression in the first place. There are several reasons why people suffer from depression. Some of which is abuse, like physical or sexual assault might lead to depression. Certain medications might develop depression as a side effect. Depression may also happen from regular conflicts between your partner or family members. A sudden loss or death in family may also lead to depression. Again, certain major events in life can also lead to depression like divorce or getting married. The event doesn't always have to be anything very different, it might also be very general like the ones mentioned. Sometimes some serious illness also results in depression. Suppose you are infected by a particular illness which made you lose a year or got a limb of your body amputated. Such things sow the seed of depression. Apart from these regular causes there is one very serious cause of depression, which is genetic. If there is a family history of depression in every generation, then it is a possibility that your children might have it as well.
When you realize these causes it will become easier for you to deal, treat and figure out how to overcome depression. There are both medications and therapies to overcome depression. There are many rehabilitation centers as well who specialize in depression treatment. Though there are medications for treating depression, but majority of times the patients get addicted to these drugs and are unable to live without them. Whenever they think of leaving the medicines the withdrawal syndromes get so severe that they have to fall back on the medications. Some of the withdrawal syndromes are sweating, unconsciousness, headache and mood swings etc. The patient is unable to behave properly; he has absolutely no control over his temper. Shows a lot of lethargy and generally has lack of confidence. But there are certain very effective therapies that help to overcome depression. The rehabilitation center does a very good job in this department and in the most cases the patient has come out clean.
