Depression is turning out to be increasingly talked about issue in our everyday lives. It is classified as a series of mood swings, sadness, loss, anxiety, anger, or any negative emotions that separates us from our happy being. It is fairly common in every age group. However, lack of awareness on how it can affect us inward and outward can take a toll on our lives. Often we believe that depression is common so it is not something we should be worried about. Moreover, we feel ashamed when we think of this word because people do share a common myth that it is a mental disability.
It is certainly not a mental disability. It is just a state of mind when one is not able to appreciate the things around and feel blue. Yes, you do need medicines to get over it, but that depends upon the severity of your condition.

So, consult a physician or psychiatrist at the earliest for support. The feelings associated with Pitta's depression include anger, fear, sense of losing control in your surroundings, anxiety that you may fail.
