We’ve all experienced feelings of sadness, loneliness, or even depression from time to time. Being depressed is a natural reaction to a majorly stressful event in one’s life. However, when these feelings start to overwhelm a person and affect everyday life, it’s time to seek help from a professional. If not treated, long periods of clinical depression can lead to a life that becomes too difficult to live, and not getting treatment can be potentially life threatening.
Symptoms: Symptoms of depression include difficulty concentrating and remembering details, fatigue and decreased energy, feeling worthless and helpless, hopelessness, insomnia, restlessness and irritability, loss of interest in activities or hobbies that once gave pleasure, overeating or appetite loss, feelings of sadness and anxiety, thoughts of suicide.
