Day 3: I don’t know about this condition… November 3, 2012

Posted by laosita in Uncategorized.

Today’s #NHBPM topic: I don’t know about this, but I’d like to.

Not the symptoms, not the stats, not the at-risk groups, but what is going on from one neurotransmitter to the next in someone diagnosed with depression.

In reading posts from some DOC members who’ve shared what they go through in living with depression, it’s clear that different people are affected in different ways and at different times. Why? What is going on, in science-y terms, to cause depression? Is it a condition that can come and go, and if so, what other factors might be incorporated? As with diabetes, it seems there are many different types, different causes, and treatments, but no true ‘cure’.

Note: I’m sure all this information resides somewhere. I just have never looked. Yet.
