Depression can take hold of your life and make you feel like there’s no escape. It impacts how people feel, think and act. From severe low moods to the inability to function in certain situations (such as at work or social events), it is a serious medical illness that needs treating.
Symptoms that you may have depression
There are dozens of signs that may indicate that you have a form of depression such as:
- Having constant low moods
- Feeling unfulfilled and sad
- Feeling helpless and hopeless
- Feeling low about yourself
- Feeling irritable and intolerant of others
- Losing motivation and interests
- Feeling anxious and worried
- Wanting to harm yourself
- Suicidal thoughts
When should you seek help for depression?
Don’t make the mistake of allowing your emotions to boil up inside you. If you feel that you have depression, talk to someone as soon as possible. Speak to a friend or family member, and consult your doctor. While it is treatable, you need to be open to the different treatments available to you.
There are various depression treatments including a change of medication, self-help resources, mindfulness and depression therapy.
How does depression therapy help?
Talking to a professional can be extremely helpful to people who suffer from depression. Many find it easier to talk to strangers rather than their loved ones, and others simply may not have anyone who understands. A depression therapist will listen and help you find the answers to your questions.
They are non-judgemental and there for you. Whether you want to discuss an issue, cry, vent or just contemplate, depression therapy gives people an opportunity to get to the root of problems and find solutions.
There are many different kinds of depression therapy, so you should be able to find the one that suits you. Of course, it’s not a magic fixer, it won’t make your feelings suddenly go away, but it will help you cope with your depression, understand it and in time you may eventually overcome it.
