Mood Disorder #5: Dysthymia

There are different types of depression that can affect people in different ways. Dysthymia is a type of depression that has symptoms that are less severe than that of standard depression. Although the symptoms may not be as severe, they are likely to last for a lot longer.

People with dysthymia will tend to go for long periods feeling generally down and have a low sense of self-esteem. They will be reluctant to get involved with activities and hobbies and will often shy away from social situations. It can have quite an impact on the patient’s quality of life overall.
