Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), also known as major depression, can have the most severe and serious symptoms.
With major depression, the dark mood associated with depression is all-consuming. You may lose interest in activities that previously brought you pleasure. You are more likely to have numerous depressive symptoms at the same time, like low energy, appetite changes, difficulty with concentration, sleep disturbances, or feelings of hopelessness or guilt.
These symptoms are severe enough to impact your relationships, work performance, or other important areas of your life. Your depressive symptoms may sometimes start after a personal loss or difficult life event, but symptoms persist significantly longer than what would normally be expected.
Major Depression can be managed with the right treatment.
