My depression is getting worse without treatment. It’s ruining my life, my relationships, and it’s affecting my work

Depression sucks! It’s like someone is sucking the life and energy out of you. Every day it’s rinse, recycle, repeat. One crappy day on top of another. It’s difficult to get up in the morning, let alone go to work and live any normal kind of life.

At first, it was hard for you to realize how bad it was. The depression symptoms slowly crept up on you. As a result, you now feel stuck. You go days or weeks without talking to people. Whole weekends are spent on the couch or in bed. You eat and/or sleep too much or too little. Tears and feelings of loneliness will not go away. You want to have fun and laugh with family and friends. However, it doesn’t happen.

Nothing is Helping You Feel Better

Meanwhile, your confidence and self-esteem are low. Even though working out is good, it’s not helping. Eating differently, reading self-help books, going for walks… However, nothing is working. Each time you wake up and realize is going to be the same again. You sigh and tell yourself  “OK, here we go again. I’m so tired of this! I just want to be normal and happy again…”

We know depression can sometimes be too much to handle on your own. Therefore, reach out to us now and schedule a free consultation with one of our Great Lakes Wellness Counseling therapists. Our depression counseling experts can help.

What type of thinking is associated with depression?

Depression sucks. I can’t even go one step in the right direction.

Why can’t I pay attention to things.

I don’t want to, I’m too tired.

It feels like I’m stuck and I can’t escape it.

It’ll never get better.

Why I’m so angry all the time?

I’m sad all the time

I have nothing good to offer anyone.

I just don’t care anymore.

Common Symptoms Addressed in Depression Treatment

At some point in life, everyone experiences a bit of depression. Similarly, we feel sad and we get tearful. Likewise, we feel empty or hopeless. Other times depression is so severe we don’t get out of bed or go to work. For some, it’s a short season in life; for others, it feels like an eternity. There is hope though!

To clarify there are three common areas where depression can impact our lives: mentally, physically, and socially.


Mental Symptoms of Depression

Being sad, feeling empty, or hopeless. Low frustration tolerance. Guilt or shame. Difficulty concentrating, remembering things, and making decisions. Recurring thoughts of death.

Physical Symptoms of Depression

Physical symptoms of depression could be fatigue and lack of energy. Being restless. Feeling slow or lazy. Having pains such as headaches or other aches with no clear cause. Lack of sleep or sleeping too much. Decreased libido or lack of sexual performance.

Social Symptoms of Depression

A lack of desire to want to spend time with others or doing fun things with others. Pulling away from friends and family. Frequently being agitated with others.

What is depression therapy?

Depression therapy is like many other forms of therapy. First, you meet with your depression therapist and share what you would like to see change in your life. Second, you develop a treatment plan to reduce or eliminate your depression. Thirdly, you attend regular weekly sessions where you challenge depressing thoughts, behaviors and actions. As soon as you begin seeing progress your visits may become less frequent. Even though therapy for depression may seem difficult, it isn’t as complicated as you might think. Perhaps you think your depression will be around forever. It won’t. Depression treatment with our depression therapists helps people in the area of Grand Rapids, Michigan win back their life.
