What is depression?
Depression negatively affects how you feel, think, and act and can come with various symptoms. It causes a constant feeling of overwhelming sadness and despair and a lack of interest in activities, social interaction, and other pursuits. From time to time, we all experience grief. Still, when this sadness becomes disruptive to your daily life, it can indicate a deeper issue. Our therapists work to understand what you feel to create a depression treatment plan that works to restore the body, mind, and spirit. Depression can present itself in several ways, and each person is different and has unique symptoms.
What are the symptoms of depression?
Depression has several symptoms that can present themselves to people who are grappling with it. As depression can make people feel a lack of energy, it can affect all areas of a person's life. Whether it be at school, work, extracurriculars, or more, depression can take hold and make life more stressful. From a lack of desire for social interaction to increased tiredness, difficulty getting motivated, and more, each person has unique symptoms. Our therapists take time in the session to understand what symptoms you are experiencing so we can customize a healing process that works for you and your needs. A few of the common symptoms of depression include:
You feel as if you are constantly tired and want to sleep more rather than doing other activities throughout the day.
If you sleep more than the necessary amount needed and want to just stay in bed, that's a sign that you may be experiencing depression, especially in the colder months.
3) Difficulty concentrating
Whether it be at work, school, or any other endeavor, depression can make it challenging to stay focused.
If you are feeling a lack of enthusiasm, energy, or motivation, you may be struggling with lethargy.
5) Social withdrawal
Are you uninterested in spending time with friends, family, significant others, or other social groups? When grappling with depression, a common symptom is wanting to spend time alone.
