When people ask how you’re doing, you often reply with, ‘I’m fine’. The truth is, you are far from fine. There are so many internal battles that you are fighting. And you work hard everyday to mask how you feel. When there is a lot going on in life, many people find it hard to cope, so you hide behind the smile (if you can show one).
You’ve lost the joyful feelings that you used to have in life
You wake up every morning feeling sad and depressed
You experience constant brain fog
You feel a lack of motivation to do anything
You wonder, will a therapist really be able to understand my concerns? Will they really be able to help me with my pain? You wonder, how do I even begin to describe or articulate what I feel or what I’m going through?
Most people who start Depression Therapy feel a combination of feeling down, sadness and irritability. Maybe your days start to blur together or you are unmotivated to do anything.
