Depressive Disorders

Within the broader categories of anxiety and depression, there are a variety of forms these illnesses can take. A few of the ways that depression can manifest include…

  • Major Depressive Disorder – This is the form of depression that most people think of when they talk about depression. Symptoms include difficult emotions such as despair, emptiness, hopelessness, and sadness that are difficult to control. People may experience fluctuations in their appetite or sleep patterns (either increases or decreases). They frequently experience difficulty concentrating, and they may even experience suicide idealization or thoughts about dying. These symptoms will persist for at least two weeks to be diagnosed as Major Depressive Disorder.
  • Bipolar Disorder – This is a form of depression that swings people between two emotional extremes: mania and depression. The depression phase includes the symptoms of Major Depressive Disorder. The mania phase is a furious feeling of either irritation or happiness. During a manic episode, people may make risky and unhealthy choices about their finances, sexuality, and health. They may not sleep but still experience excessive energy.

Anxiety Disorders

In the same way that depression has many forms, so does anxiety. A few examples of the different types of anxiety disorders include…

  • Panic Disorder – Sometimes, anxiety manifests as repeated panic attacks. When this occur, people may have panic disorder. Panic attacks are characterized by a racing heart, people may feel hot or cold, and they often believe they are going to die.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder – People can feel extreme worry and nervousness within a normal social setting. They often feel embarrassed or judged, even though no one is judging them.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – Involves the lingering effects of a traumatic situation. People may experience nightmares or flashbacks that make them feel as if the event is happening. They often continue to feel the high stress and anxiety that they felt during the trauma long after the trauma has passed.

Shannon Clay is an absolute GEM! I've never know a "professional" who exuded an empathy and compassion for what they do as a profession, as Shannon does! She personifies an uncanny willingness to provide resources and a listening ear. She's never judgemental and gives the best advice! I am a better person for having met her. I pray she goes far in this business, especially in the climate we are living in nowadays!
