What is Depression?
Depression, we all experience it from time to time. It is a very common and serious medical issue that negatively affects the way you feel, how you think, and the way you act. Short term emotional distress or mild depression is fleeting, but long term emotional distress is depression, which can become overwhelming. When this occurs, we either struggle alone or wisely recognize that others are willing and waiting to help. Depression is technically defined as a mental illness, which many people wrongly assume is the same as a short-term emotional distress, high levels of anxiety, or just feeling low.
Signs of Depression include Feelings and Thoughts of:
- Self Harm
- Hurting Others
- Excessive Weight Change
- Excessive Crying
Should You Consider Counseling?
It is ironic that the same people who immediately seek help for a broken arm are unwilling to seek help for broken emotions. Healing is possible with proper therapy. Unattended, depression is much more serious than a broken arm. Depression can leave you at the risk for self harm and/or suicide. Let our caring professionals begin the healing! Many times, short term care can alleviate struggles when you seek help early on at signals of oncoming depression. While everyone goes through periods of lows and highs or experiences anxiety attacks during stressful times, those suffering from depression are much more seriously stressed.
