Signs of Depression

While feeling sad or anxious are normal and expected feelings at different times in life, constant and oppressive feelings of extreme sadness may be indicative of depression. According to the Mayo Clinic, signs of depression may include:

  • Feeling sad or hopeless
  • Feeling empty
  • Losing interest in pleasurable activities or routine activities (hobbies, work, intimacy, etc.)
  • Feeling anxious or agitated
  • Loss of weight due to increased appetite or food cravings and weight gain
  • Feeling worthless and experiencing low self-esteem
  • Troubling concentrating or thinking
  • Physical problems or pain that cannot be explained
  • Thoughts or suicide or self-harm

Again, feeling some of the symptoms above at some points—for example, during a life change, going through a stressful event or time at work, or experiencing loss—is not the same as major depressive disorder. 

The Basics of Depression Therapy

Depression therapy may look different for different people depending on symptoms, root causes of depression, the patient’s age, and the patient’s goal for depression therapy. Usually, however, depression therapy will involve:

  • Working with your therapist during your first few sessions to identify your goals for depression therapy;
  • Exploring your past experiences, including childhood and past relationships, and how they may impact your perceptions today;
  • Identifying your thoughts and finding language to describe how you feel;
  • Learning new tools and strategies for coping with your depression;
  • Exploring different perspectives; and
  • Exploring long-term solutions to help you cope with depression and live the fullest version of your life. 

You Are Not Alone

For those who are suffering from depression, depression can feel incredibly isolating, or even embarrassing and shameful. It can also feel as though there is no reason to hope; that life will never improve. At Life Insight, we want you to know that you are not alone.
