Depression can be immobilizing. It can start slowly and progress rapidly. It impacts every area of your life like a blanket of heaviness and darkness. Sleep, appetite, exercise, career, relationships, and self-care can all be affected by depression. The feeling that the depression is here to stay and may not go away is terrifying for many. Imagining your life before the depression can be difficult to envision. Let a P.S. Psychiatry professional help you!
Everyone experiences sadness. Some people, though, experience something greater, something darker. Although Depression can look different for everyone, there are some common signs and symptoms to look out for. If you feel like any of the following signs and symptoms describe your feelings, let us know. Your P.S. Psychiatry provider is looking forward to helping you get back to feeling like yourself.
Lack of Motivation: Doing the simplest tasks can feel overwhelming. Starting something new or finishing a project can feel impossible.
Sleep Disturbances: Even though you try to regulate your sleep, you find that you sleep too much or too little.
Fatigue: No matter how much sleep you seem to get, you feel really low energy, making it difficult to start anything.
Loss of Interest: You don’t seem to be interested in the things you once loved doing. You find it difficult to get excited.
Hopeless and Helpless: No matter what you do, nothing will make you feel better, and no one will be able to help you.
