Depression is a mood disorder that can impact our thoughts, feelings, behavior and daily functioning.
We all experience sadness and emotional distress, when we are faced with difficult situations or grief. While we are mostly able to overcome these feelings in due time, sometimes it takes longer.
We may also feel like these are beginning to significantly interfere with our daily life. The feelings may disappear for some time but come back, repeatedly. This could be linked with depression.
