A major depressive disorder (or “depression”) is diagnosed when five or more of the following symptoms of depression are present for most of the day, nearly every day for at least 2 weeks. At least one of the symptoms must be either persistent sad or “empty” feelings or loss of interest in activities.
Possibly others too have noticed you have lost energy levels, your smile, and your positive outlook on life. You know you want to continue living fully and feeling better about yourself physically as well as emotionally but somehow you can’t shake it off!
It takes a lot of courage to realize you might need help outside yourself. Yet, you are here because you are tired of your symptoms lasting as long as they have, and they haven’t gone away and you realize you cannot do this might be more serious than I thought.
