Is It the Blues or Is It Clinical Depression?

(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Menlo Park, CA, July 12, 2018 – We all feel down, or blue, or sad, at times. Sadness is a natural human emotion, usually triggered by a loss, disappointment, or major life change. According to psychiatrist Dr. Alex Dimitriu, this sadness is generally short-lived and dissipates over time as we adjust to a new situation. “We often casually refer to this situational sadness as depression,” he says, “but it is important to distinguish it from clinical depression, a much more severe and long-lasting condition that has serious implications for long-term mental and physical health and must be diagnosed and treated by a medical professional.”
