Treatment Matters

Depression Is Like A Thief

Many people struggle with the symptoms of depression without realizing it. You might feel off as though you are functioning much below your normal. Perhaps you struggle to get out of bed in the morning, feel listless throughout the day and find work and activities unrewarding. Maybe you dwell on the tasks you haven’t accomplished and feel irritable and frustrated.

Depression can rob you of your happiness, energy, motivation, and hope. It’s a vicious circle. Depression slows you down mentally and physically. Everything becomes an effort and you tire easily. You do less and blame yourself for doing less. You eventually develop a negative narrative in your head that you can do nothing right and that you will never get over your depression. And, those messages fuel your depression and make you feel more worse. This where professional counseling makes a difference. Counseling gives you a safe and private platform to pull out those troubling issues before a caring and trained objective adviser that knows how to help you untangle all the emotions from events and restore your hope in new ways forward.
