"Many people with dysthymic disorder have no idea they have a mood disorder. They just believe that they are "meant" to be depressed, or that negativity, pessimism, sadness and low energy are just part of their personality." 

"The point is, dysthymia is a very dysfunctional illness, even relative to acute major depression. Dysthymia is what ruins peoples' lives."
Columbia University, New York State Psychiatric Institute Dr. Jonathan W. Stewart said.

According to Clinical Psychiatry News, Aug. 1, 2010, dysthymia:

  • causes more people to be on Social Security, Medicaid and disability than those with major depression or the general population
  • results in more people having emotional and physical problems interfering with work and social activities than those with major depression or the general population
  • results in fewer people finding full time employment than those with major depression or the general population

Do not let anyone convince you dysthymic disorder is "mild" and does not create imbalance and difficulty in your life.
