People with Dysthymia are often thought of as being overly critical, constantly complaining and incapable of having fun. Dysthymia is a mild but long-term (chronic) form of depression. Symptoms usually last for at least two years, and often for much longer than that. People with dysthymia may have physical changes in their brains. The significance of these changes is still uncertain, but they may eventually help pinpoint causes. Dysthymia appears to be more common in people whose biological (blood) relatives also have the condition. As with depression, environment may contribute to Dysthymia. Environmental causes are situations in your life that are difficult to cope with, such as the loss of a loved one, financial problems or a high level of stress.
