Understanding the causes of depression and how it effects your life is important.
Depression and the symptoms you experience can impact your life and the lives of those you love. Children and even your spouse will feel the effects. When sadness, lack of energy, and an overall disinterest in your own life takes over, everyone feels it.
Often, in the midst of depression, your actions and choices can pull you further into the grey areas of sadness and loneliness. Refusing to socialize with friends and family, sleeping long hours, avoiding responsibilities and ignoring daily chores are a few of the signs that professional help is necessary.
Help is available! Seek professional help if your symptoms are keeping you from enjoying your life.
