Major depressive disorder/clinical depression causes you to feel sad and lonely. You also lose interest in things you once enjoyed, and you don’t think you or anything around matters much. When these feelings occur for more than two weeks, you definitely should see a doctor. It might be the first sign of depression.

Clinical depression is a severe thing. Don’t disregard it while you experience a range of different symptoms.

Both physical and emotional symptoms may manifest as:

  • Sadness (or emptiness that lasts over 2 weeks),

  • Hopelessness as life won’t get better, and this feeling of sadness will last forever,

  • Worthlessness (feeling constant guilt and helplessness. You might relive your past failures over and over again and blame yourself for it),

  • Frustration and anger (you may be easily frustrated and angered even by small things),

  • Fatigue (you may experience a lack of energy or feel tired most of the time. You wish you could sleep everything in),

  • Crying (it can also happen for no reason, and it can happen often),

  • Apathy (nothing interests you, inspires you. everything is gray and flat),

  • Lack of concentration (you have a difficult time remembering, maintaining focus, and making decisions),

  • Withdrawal (you isolate yourself from other people, don’t go to the events, don’t answer the phone),

  • Sleep problems (you may not fall asleep or stay asleep. You may also prefer to stay in bed even when you have had enough sleep. You just don’t feel like leaving the bed).

  • Overeating or lack of appetite (you may start overeating to escape your problems or the opposite, lose interest in food and loss weight). 

  • Physical pain and suicidal thoughts (this is never normal). Once you find yourself thinking that way, it’s a good idea to turn to your loved ones or see the doctor. This can worsen if not treated well.

People with depression don’t just “snap out of it” or “pull themselves up by their bootstraps.” Depression is not your fault, and it is not a sign of weakness or laziness; it is a real illness with real causes. Don’t face it alone. Depression treatment can help you feel better! CBT is an extremely effective form of depression treatment. In counseling, you will learn to identify the thoughts that are causing you pain. Then, you will learn how to reframe these thoughts and practice healthy coping skills to fight the symptoms of depression. Finally, your therapist will encourage you to engage in the behaviors or activities that used to bring you happiness.

Why Does Depression Happen Again?

There isn’t one known cause of depression. Instead, various factors are included: biological, genetic, environmental, and emotional. Depression can be triggered even by everyday life events like losing a job or other trauma. 

Sometimes this can be the fault of the medication you take or the therapy you attend (it may be improper or not enough). You need to observe how you feel and remember about check-ins with your doctor to monitor your condition. Depression is not something you can fight on your own.

So if something is bothering you, or you had those depressive episodes in the past, remember you can always reach out for help. You are not alone.
