The severity of depression is hugely underestimated and although most of us complain to be depressed at some point in our lives, the majority wouldn't meet the criteria for a clinical diagnosis. Nonetheless, though mild depression is common, some people experience it in its severe form - one that can leave you completely debilitated. I saw a man who apart from other things, stopped eating and drinking and when spoken to would make noises like an animal. Overtime I watched him undergo electrocompulsive therapy (ETC) which worked miraculously! Just a few days ago, the same man was sitting up and had a full conversation with me :) #psychiatry #hospital #medicine #depression #lowmood #notes #pens #colours #paper #study #student #studyblr #physicianassistant #physicianassociate #rotations #medschool #mentalhealth
