Mood disorders Disturbances in mood or prolonged emotional state are known as mood disorders. Which means that for most people they have different emotions that range from happy to sad, loud or quiet and so on. Mood disorders affect the capability of this and restricts these emotions. This means that they have a hard time being both but rather stuck on one, either super sad or super happy depending on what is going on in their lives. Or some people seem to alternate between the extremes of euphoria and sadness. One of the most known mood disorders is depression, which is when someone feels overwhelmed with sadness, feelings of worthlessness, loses interest in regular activities and has excessive guilt. Normal depressions are the sad feelings from a lost one, a bad break up with someone you loved or liked, problems at work or at home and school and even the case of the Mondays. Depression is only classified as clinical depression when it is long lasting, serious and well beyond the typical reaction to a stressful life.
