When a person lives with a family member or a close friend that has
atypical depression, it can often feel that a normal and happy
atmosphere is something that is absolutely impossible to achieve.
However, when the symptoms that an individual may suffer from and the
treatment plans that are available for atypical depression are looked
at and compared to a few of the other forms of depression, this
particular type of depression is one of the milder types.
They can enjoy having a good time with family members and close friends; however, when stressful situations occur, or the individual is alone again they will often slip right back down into a deep depression. Continuous bouts of being over-emotional, sleeping more than they should, and eating amounts of food that are more than normal, are often factors that can have a negative impact on romantic relationships they are involved in.
