Chronic Depression affects almost 20% of the population. It impacts children, adults and seniors and can have devastating consequences. Most of us have had some experience with the dull negativity and darkness that a veil of depression can cast. But when depression becomes chronic and the veil doesn’t lift, it can become very serious. Not only does depression make life miserable, it can make it unbearable. Suicide is a rare but very real outcome of chronic depression. The spectrum of chronic depression symptoms is deep and wide:

  • Sadness, remorse, regret
  • Overeating or lack of appetite
  • Irritability and anger, restlessness and agitation
  • Insomnia and sleepiness
  • Malaise, boredom, carelessness
  • Inability to feel pleasure and positive emotions
  • loss of interest in what is present and focusing on what is lacking
  • Fatigue, low energy, chronic exhaustion
  • Hopelessness, helpless, self-pity
  • Self-hate, worthlessness, guilt, shame

Depression changes how we perceive everything: our life, our loved ones, our jobs, our past, our present and our future. It can be treated, but a careful and comprehensive diagnostic evaluation is essential for assuring an individualized therapy protocol and the best possible outcome.
