General Depression or Bipolar Depression?
If you or someone you know is getting depressed more than you think is normal be sure a doctor's appointment is made. Also, be certain the doctor knows all the details of the depression. I had a friend getting treated for depression that kept getting worse and in the end she was found to be bipolar which needs a whole different set of treatments to be successful. For anyone interested here is a good article explaining bipolar depression and what to expect.
