Clinical depression is often confused with ordinary feelings of sadness or ‘the blues’. The distinction often lies in the severity, length of the symptoms, and the extent to which it interferes with your daily functioning. Depression impacts how you think, feel and act, often leading to difficulty engaging in day-to-day activities.
Often times people do not seek treatment for depression because they feel ‘weak’ or believe they need to just ‘snap out of it’. Some even believe that ‘this is as good as it gets’. Thankfully, depression can be treated and life can get better. While there is not often a ‘quick fix’, individual therapy has proven to be effective.
