You don’t have to cope with persistent depression on your own.
But feeling unhappy, hopeless, or emotionally empty most days can wear you down.
You may struggle to find the energy to do what you need each day or feel emotionally or physically drained. Then you end up feeling even more behind and don’t know how you’ll catch up.
You may cry more frequently or feel bursts of anger without understanding why. You may feel like you can’t find joy or enjoyment in anything anymore.
You may have trouble concentrating or staying focused. You may notice negative or self-blaming thoughts that leave you feeling less confident in yourself.
You want to feel better, but nothing you do helps you shake your sadness.
You may be tired of feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by feelings of sadness and depression. But you haven’t found a way to “push through,” so you feel like yourself again.
You may even have tried to numb your pain with alcohol, food, or substances, but any effect was only temporary—and may have left you feeling worse.
