You’ve started to notice that you’re moving more slowly. That your sleep has become dysregulated and your appetite has changed. Your brain feels a little foggy. There seems to be a wet blanket over your positive emotions. You’re a little more irritable than usual and a lot more unsatisfied with your day-to-day life.
This is not the life you want to live.
Depression was not a part of the plan.
You’ve stopped enjoying the things that normally bring a sense of happiness or contentment to you. Most things, maybe even everything, feel like a drag. They wear you out and you just don’t have the energy for most of the things you usually do in a day. Being able to complete simple tasks seems monumental lately. And not only do you not have the energy for them but any bit of motivation seems to have been lost forever.
Maybe you know you have depression and maybe you’re not sure but you do know this: the feeling you’ve been
carrying inside for this long now…well, it’s gotta go.
You just feel so sad so much of the time. And some days, the ones where you aren’t feeling sad, you just feel empty. And let’s be honest: that doesn’t necessarily feel better. You’re bummed out, frustrated with yourself, frustrated with the world, and you. just. want. to. be. better.
You CAN have a better, more fulfilled life.
It’s reached the point where you’re not sure how it is to be around you. So you’ve started to turn down invitations to go to brunch, show up for a birthday party, or go to a happy hour after work. Not only is it too much energy for you to go to those events, but you also are convinced that no one actually wants you there anymore because you’re such a downer.
Your other thoughts aren’t helpful either. It’s like the depression has reached its way into your brain, too. It’s affected your confidence in yourself, your ability to make a decision without questioning it. You’re not sure if it’s your job, your relationship, or something else altogether that’s led you to this. But you do know that your job, your relationship, and all the roles you occupy in your life are taking a hit.
You Know Things Need to Change. You're now considering depression treatment.
And you’re ready. You’re ready to get better. You’re ready to find your way back to yourself. To be free from the weight of this feeling. To be free from the harshness of your thoughts.
You’re ready to wake up in the mornings and not feel dread that it’s going to be another day to fight through.
You’re ready to rejoin the social world and feel energized enough to enjoy the company of others. And have them enjoy you and your company.
You’re ready to just feel “normal.”
