Depression

When individuals experience depression, it is often unexplainable and difficult to verbalize to yourself and to others. Different factors such as genetics, environment, life events,  can lead to episodes of “waves” of depression. Depression is hard to understand, but there is hope.

Some of the most common emotional and psychological symptoms of depression can be:

  • Change in eating patterns
  • Sudden changes in your mood (irritability, frustration, impatience)
  • Poor hygiene habits
  • Change in your weight (either increased or decreased)
  • Unexplainable sadness
  • Experience the need to just stay home and not do anything
  • Isolating yourself from friends and family (even if you are surrounded by people who love you and care for you)
  • Feelings of wanting to cry
  • Sudden tearfulness
  • Feeling stuck
  • Tiredness
  • Headaches, body aches
  • Feelings of not wanting to live
  • Intense feelings of guilt
  • Feelings unloved and feeling
  • like there is no way out
  • Being in a “black hole”

*If you believe you have a medical condition, please make an appointment with your primary care physician first.
