DYSTHYMIA AND DEPRESSION 17 Milder than depression and too brief to be dysthymia, minor depres­ sions usually don’t catch the attention of loved ones or family doctors, but they are distressing and compromise life in a clearly negative way. Although a minor depression may seem like no big deal, it is a sig­ nificant risk factor for dysthymia and major depression: • Almost 30 percent young adults with minor depression will have a major depression within 15 years. • Minor depression also alters the course of subsequent bouts of major depression.

Many people with SAD also experience short-lived natural “highs” (or hypomanias) in the spring or summer. SAD is prevalent in less than 1 percent of the adult population of the United States and Asia, and up to 3 percent in Canada and Europe. About 75 percent of all people who experience depression will suffer at least one recurrence in the subsequent ten years: of those who do, about 15 percent experience the fall and winter depression pattern char­ acteristic of SAD. PREMENSTRUAL DYSPHORIC DISORDER If you have monthly depressions that correspond with your menstrual cycle, you might have premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PDD or DYSTHYMIA AND DEPRESSION 29 PMDD; also called late-luteal dysphoric disorder).

6. Almost always feels tired and low energy. 7. Feel guilt or worthlessness nearly all the time. 8. Difficulty concentrating almost all the time. 9. Thinks frequently about death and/or suicide.
