Imagine feeling positive, happy and carefree…
It is a sad fact that in today’s world depression has become quite a common condition. Around 15% of people will have a bout of depression at some point in their lives so you are not alone if you are reading this. The exact number is hard to estimate though and could be even higher because so many people are never diagnosed or seek professional help. This is certainly unfortunate because there are now very effective treatments readily available and there is no need for people to suffer in silence.
If you are depressed, you may have feelings of extreme sadness that can last for a long time. These feelings can be severe enough to interfere with your daily life and your sleep patterns and usually last for weeks, or months, rather than days. There is nothing to be ashamed of to admit that you have depression though. There is far more awareness and understanding about the condition today and your local GP will be fully up to speed to answer any of your questions.
Doctors describe depression in the following ways:
a) By how serious it is. If it is mild, it is likely to have some impact on your daily life, if it is moderate, it is likely to have significant impact on your daily life and if it is severe – daily activities may be almost impossible.
b) By physical symptoms. If you have depression, you will probably have one or two (or maybe more) physical symptoms, such as constant tiredness, insomnia or a serious loss of appetite etc
If you are unsure whether you have depression, we would always recommend that you seek professional medical help and run through our Depression Questionnaire.
If you are suffering from depression then you are already aware of how many negative thoughts your mind can generate. I am sure you are also aware that ‘intellectual reasoning’ does very little, if anything, to solve negative states of mind such as depression. By telling yourself rationally that you should feel positive is unlikely to make you feel happier, but rather can end up making you feel like you have failed.
Most people try to change their behaviour using just their willpower in the conscious mind – however they don’t change the programmed habits and beliefs that are stored in the unconscious mind…This is where we are different…
