Aerateaus and Mood Disorders

Did you know that…..

Aretaeus, born in the second century in Asia Minor, described the symptomatology of Mood Disorders ?

He also saw a connection between Hypomanic and Depressives episodes,  anticipating for at least seventeen centuries to modern Psychiatry.

Aretaeus described very well the guilty-ridden and the self-sacrificing attitudes of depressed patient, and the gay and overactive behavior of the hypomanic.
