Do you have a low mood that has persisted for a long time? Does it affect your everyday life? Does it seem to just keep coming back? Chances are you are one of the many people in the UK that suffers from depression. Depression can vary in severity and scientists have struggled to find a cause. What research has shown is that good quality talking therapies can be effective for anyone suffering from depression, with or without traditional drug treatments.
Symptoms of depression can vary (and often include anxiety symptoms) but can include:
- Continuous low mood
- Feeling tearful
- Feeling hopeless
- Feeling out of control
- Feelings of guilt
- Anxiousness and persistent worries
- Low confidence and self esteem
- Loss of motivation and interest
It can have physical symptoms such as:
- Weight changes
- Disturbed sleep
- Loss of sex drive
- Aches and pains
- Lack of energy
- Tummy problems
And social implications:
- Avoiding activity that you once enjoyed
- Cutting yourself off from friends and family
- Struggling at work
- Relationship problems
