Depression

Symptoms of depression typically include feeling worse in the morning (gradually feeling better as the day goes on), together with a loss of one or more (typically more) of the following:
• sleep (usually early morning waking)
• appetite
• energy
• enthusiasm
• concentration
• memory
• confidence
• self-esteem
• sex-drive
• personal drive
• joy
• patience
• feeling
• empathy
• hope
• love
…and almost anything else you can think of.
 
Identifying depression (that is, getting a medical diagnosis of depression) or even admitting to ourselves that we are depressed is extremely challenging, both from our internal self-doubt and inexplicable inability to ‘pull ourselves together’ or ‘snap out of it’, as well as from the very real judgement we experience from others, who don’t see or understand the causes of depression or how they affect our new depressed behaviour.
 
Whilst living with depression is brutally difficult for the one who is actually depressed, those who live with someone else’s depression are also hard pressed to understand how to help depressed loved ones and how best to support their journey through depression.
 
Depression is described by its sufferers in different ways that make it a challenge to understand and get to grips with. Change Counselling offers both sufferers and carers depression therapy in Salisbury.
