When people have a depressive disorder, they feel really sad for a long time and cannot shake this feeling. They also often have problems with sleeping, trouble with appetite, feel tired a lot of the time, and have problems concentrating.  Depressive disorder interferes with their ability to do things in their lives that they normally can do well; and it causes pain for both the people with the disorder and those who care about them.  Depressive disorder is a common but serious illness.  Many people never seek treatment for their depression, but most people who experience depression feel better if they get treatment.
