I have a reputation for disposing of Depression once and for all, never to return again.
Depression can affect us both physically and mentally.
Physical Symptoms may include, but not limited to: Back Pain, Headaches, Muscles Aches and Pains, Chest Pains, Digestive Problems, Change in Appetite and Weight, Decreased Interest in Sex, Insomnia, Lack Of Deep Sleep or Oversleeping, Moving or Speaking More Slowly, Changes to Menstrual Cycle, Constipation.

There are different types of Depression and some conditions where Depression may be one of the symptoms. Generally, Depression is referred to as 'Clinical Depression' and is graded by its severity:
Mild Depression - has some impact on your daily life.
Moderate Depression - has a significant impact on your daily life.
Severe Depression - makes it almost impossible to get through daily life.
Other forms of Depression include:
Postnatal Depression - Some women develop Depression after having a baby.
Bipolar Disorder - Known as Manic Depression. There are episodes of Depression and Mania (excessively high mood)
Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D) -Also know as Winter Depression, S.A.D is a type of depression that has a seasonal pattern, usually related to Winter.
Despite Depression being multifaceted and producing various combinations of symptoms within individual sufferers, the one commonality that links all sufferers is, there has to be a reason 'why', why each individual develops their specific symptoms of depression. I work too, not only, understand how and when Depression affects the individual, but also to identify, understand and correct the belief that underpins the reason why; only then can a person be freed from their Depression.
