DEPRESSION SUPPORT

FEELING LOW ALL THE TIME? FROM TIME TO TIME WE CAN ALL FEEL SAD, MISERABLE AND FED UP

While these are understandable reactions to upsetting or stressful events and experiences, it is also quite normal to experience them for no reason at all. But if they persist, they can be signs of depression. Depression affects one in six of us. A person may be depressed if,  for more than two weeks, they have experienced either (or both) of the following1:

  • A sense of sadness, emptiness or low mood for most of the day, nearly every day
  • A loss of interest or pleasure in almost all activities, even ones usually enjoyed.

For a diagnosis of depression, there are specific symptoms that impact a person’s daily life. These could include lack of motivation, difficulties in concentration, pessimism, sleep disturbances, irritability, crying, suicidal thoughts, social withdrawal, changes in appetite, loss of sex drive and lack of enthusiasm and pleasure. If you are suffering from depression you won’t find easy or quick relief. Your feelings of sadness can continue for weeks and months, and interfere significantly in your relationships, employment and health.
