Example of Disorder
John's parents have noticed that he seems rather gloomy lately. They have tried to surprise him with gifts, but nothing seems to change his mood. He consistently wears a look on his face as if he doesn't care about anything; not even life. John has begun experiencing strong feelings of gloom and hopelessness which have led to loss of appetite, excessive insomnia and internal debates of suicide. John has begun psychotherapy to avoid these symptoms.

Prognosis
Famous Example:
Eeyore
Reference Slide
In addition, doctors may use psychotherapy (talk therapy). Often, the two are used in combination.
Dysthemia is, in fact, a chronic disorder (ongoing). Because the disorder is continuous, so is the treatment; lasting an entire lifespan if necessary to keep symptoms from reoccurring. The success rate of treatment is high for a chronic disease; especially if medications are coupled with psychotherapy.
Eeyore suffers from Dysthemia. Almost everytime he is seen, he looks to have an extremely gloomy look to him. He never seems to find happiness and always has a sense of hopelessness one cannot miss. In addition, pleasure to seems to evade Eeyore and he is always complaining how he has no friends. Lastly, his voice reflects his state; both monotone and pessimistic.
