Is Depression more like a type of exhaustion?

So I have been thinking and it seems to hint at just that. Depression is like a weakness of the whole body, truly the nervous system. With depression you get mental fatigue like loss of memory, concentration, intelligence etc…, physical exhaustion like lingering fatigue, weakness, poor appetite, poor sleep etc…, sexual exhaustion like impotence, infertility etc…, emotional like anxiety, low self-esteem, depression itself etc… Depression is like your whole life force is being drained out of you. People with Chronic Fatigue usually have Depression. Dysthimia, is like Chronic Fatigue where your brain cannot bounce back up to full health. Major Depression bounces back up but that’s how it began; your overall energy force fell suddenly. Like your body could not adapt to a stress. It was just a shock to what already was your weakening life force. Perhaps it is like that Qi we have in Eastern Medicine. It all seems connected. Is all seems like a whole weakness of your body.

  • God can help you with this. God is love. To help yourself, you need to know Jesus Christ, God’s Son, who is our bridge to God. God can help you live a better life. You can have a personal relationship with God by saying the prayer below. God is all-knowing, all-powerful, eternal, holy, love. God loves us and sent us His Son, Jesus Christ, so we can go to heaven if we know and follow Him. Forever means without end — time on and on without death. Forever is what happens after we die. Either we go to heaven and be with God forever, or we go to hell which is very bad and painful forever. The good people who are saved believers in Jesus Christ go to heaven. The bad people go to hell. We need to know and follow God in this world to get to heaven in the next world. We follow God by loving and obeying Him and loving others for Him. Jesus died on the cross to cancel our sins. We need to accept Jesus into our life as our Lord and Savior forever to receive God’s blessing and forgiveness plus go to heaven to be with God forever after we die. This is about being a born-again Christian. Faith in God is a gift from God. You can pray for faith in God. Just speak out and ask God for the faith to believe in Him and to follow Him. Some people find faith in God when they realize the beauty in the world is made by God. Evolution can’t explain the world’s natural beauty, for example, the parks in the world, animals, flowers, peacocks, sunsets, butterflies, rainbows, etc. After you have your faith on, you can pray a sinner’s prayer to be a born-again Christian. This prayer is very important and should be said with a sincere heart and faith in God. This is the prayer: “Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and that Jesus Christ is the sacrifice for our sins. I have done the following sins (state these out) and I pray to discontinue these sins. I pray to receive Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and Savior forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.” I’m Lutheran and I like the Baptist churches too. You could check out a Christian church and see about their weekly Bible group to learn about God’s will for your life. You can pray to God about your daily life and have a Christian church pray for you.

  • Depression is a disease just like diabetes or heart disease. It is caused by a disruption in the brain chemicals Neurotransmitters and Serotonin. The only way that one can live a happy and productive life is with the right antidepressant which corrects the disruption of brain chemicals.

    There is depression that is temporary and cause by circumstances that is not a disease but still may require the right safe medication. You can see the scientific proof of this if you go to the site webmd then ask for PetScan of healthy brain and PetScan of Depressed brain. You will be shocked at the reality of depression.

  • I believe you just answered your own question. Depression is not fun and very very exhaustive, both mentally and physically. I know
