Typically the symptoms of depression impact on a person’s health, school, work, family and social functioning. Symptoms include a lack of self-esteem, lack of enjoyment, feelings of worthlessness and at times regret or guilt that appears inappropriate at the time.

A fall in libdo and lethargy coincides with the feelings of exhaustion or the inability to make any effort to do the simplest and easiest of things. A general feeling of depletion or malaise dominates a individuals everyday mood leaving an ongoing sense of vulnerability.

Reactive depression, as the name outlines is a form of depression that is experienced as a reaction to a certain event or circumstance, situation or stressor that have occurred in an individual’s life, eg. the death of a loved one or close family member or distressful event.
