Do you find yourself feeling sick and tired of being sick and tired? You may be experiencing depression.
Depression is a culmination of symptoms that can appear suddenly after a tragic incident in your life or gradually over time. We all have bad days, but when you start to feel overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, worthlessness, or hopelessness, those symptoms can prevent you from engaging in the world with any sense of purpose.
When our lowest moments begin to dominate our daily lives, that can get in the way of connecting with our loved ones, our confidence, our motivations, and spirit. When you reach out for help from an experienced depression therapist, you can start on a path to feeling better — and having more good days than bad.
Is this Depression?
Sometimes depression feels like a worse word to use than anxiety, but that doesn’t make it wrong or make you a worse person for going through it. Have you been battling a constant lack of energy or motivation?
Maybe you’re unable to find the same joy in things you once loved, or your loved ones have pointed out that you haven’t “been yourself” lately. If that sounds familiar, let’s dig a little deeper… when we are depressed, we can feel:
Like completely shutting down
Isolated from friends and family (purposefully or subconsciously)
Unable to focus due to constant negative stream of thought
A sense of hopelessness and despair
Preferring to sleep all day or an inability to get sufficient sleep
Out of control over our eating habits — eating too much or too little on any given day
Increased irritability with ourselves, others, and life
An inclination to engage in destructive behaviors
If you’ve been dealing with any of the concerns listed above and are tired of struggling, it’s time to reach out for help from an experienced depression therapist. At J Hoffman Therapy, I offer empathy and understanding in every session so that you feel comfortable discussing and working through whatever is dragging you down.
