Depression

Coping with depression?

People with depression need compassion help and support. If someone has a broken leg there is understanding and support given freely, people can see it and understand it. Depression is an illness and needs to be understood as such, it is not by choice that people suffer from this condition, just like someone who falls over and brakes their leg and has no choice but to feel the pain, a person with depression has no choice but to feel the pain.

What is depression?

It's not just feeling sad or down, it's a condition that effects the person both mentally and physically. Someone experiencing bereavement after a death of a loved one is not considered to be depressed but in time they can become depressed if the grieving process is in one way or another interrupted, depres- sion can be a very complex illness with a number of hidden factors to uncover. We do not treat the depression, we help the person, depression is a symptom that may have been growing day by day, some- times slowly over months or years, or it can start after a traumatic experience or strikes seemingly without warning. Find a way with therapy to cope with depression in your life. Give yourself a chance to change supported with therapy.

Help for your depression

Why am I depressed or just feeling sad? Why many people end up with depression and another person does not and why someone suffers with depression most of their life while another person recovers in a few months is still unknown, although there are some indications that some people can be more susceptible to becoming depressed if there is a family history of depression. I believe that in many cases depression can be understood when it is looked at in context with that person’s life and that per- son’s ability to manage the inner emotional world in a way that leads to an inner understanding and genuine self compassion. It may sound strange but some people who have had a major episode of depression in their life can feel that it has actually been turned into a positive experience and eventually it has helped  them to make changes to the way they live life that has improved their overall mood, even though acute depression is never a nice experience in the end they did feel that it has been a very important step to becoming a better person and enjoying life more, could you feel like that? Yes you can if you are able to identify what you do that makes you more prone to depression and change it. Do you think that you have to be seen to be strong all the time? Do you need to hide your feelings even though you would expect others to let you know if they are in need of support? Do you need to be independent to the point of emotionally isolating yourself from everyone else? Do you find it hard to say no and end up doing too much for others? Do you find it hard to except compliments? Not sure? If you said yes to any of the last few questions or you are uncertain and have been feeling low or sad about life or are going through depression and are not actively suicidal it can be worth while booking a free session just to see for yourself if therapy could help. Entering therapy for depression could help you find a new ways of thinking and feeling, with careful guided exploration of your emotional life, it can be possible to find new ways of thinking that in time could bring an end to the world of depression. More than one in six people experience depression over their life time. It’s hard to be precise because a lot of people never seek any help and suffer in silence. You can do something about it. Your Recovery from depression can be helped by eating a healthy diet and finding some time to get fit or do some exercise. Just by being more active such as walking more and driving less can help you feel better in time.

Mind and body depression

The mind and the body are intertwined in life, one effects the other, psychological problems lead to physical problems, the

mind can help heal the physical self , the mind is where we live and find joy and love.

It's also the place we find dark places and despair, depression also effects the physical body. Its not just a mental state.

When the mind suffers so does the body, people with depression lose co-ordination and speed, it effects the body’s ability to

heal and fight off infection.

The ability to digest food is lowered and digestive or bowel problems can be more common.

The sense of touch and taste can also change, so it can have a deep effect on the ability to live life.

The good news is it can be treated and many people recover from it’s grip and go on to lead a good life free of depression.

If your depressed you can sometimes still enjoy a sunrise or a funny moment, but the overall feelings are dampened by a suppressing feeling that smothers your moods, it can reduce your ability to think normally or react quickly, it can feel as if your soul is carrying a large lead weight and it takes so much emotion to move it that there is none left for joy.

anti-depressants are not the answer

Depression is liable to reduce your ability to sleep and effect yourself-worth, confidence can wither away and inside you start to stagnate into emptiness, but that is just one interpretation, depression is a personal affliction, and there are many depths or levels that are felt at a time. No one is the same, and depression is a very personal experience, you need to experience it to understand fully it’s life eroding pattern.

anti-depressants have their place

Although anti-depressants are not always found to be helpful by some people and even seen as a problem by others, you may feel some benefit from taking them. They do have their place in providing some respite with some severe symptoms in the short term.

Anti-depressants can be helpful

They don’t help everyone but it is still a physical way of providing help that can in some cases save lives and should be con- sidered. Long term use is not recommended but sometimes necessary in some cases. It is always recommended that anti-de- pressants should be used with other support, such as counselling or meditation skills etc.

Physical problems leading to depression

There are physical problems that can make you depressed, such as thyroid disease or diabetes, to find out if there could be a

physical reason for your depression your Doctor will be the best place to start, do not just sit in silence, suffering, see

someone, even if it’s the local nurse or counsellor.

Therapy can and does help depression for many people, why not try a free session and see for yourself.
