Feel good again
Sadness is something we all experience. It is a normal reaction to difficult times in life and usually passes with a little time.
When a person has depression, it interferes with daily life and normal functioning. It can cause pain for both the person with depression and those who care about him or her. People with depression often feel very, very alone.
Doctors call this condition “depressive disorder,” or “clinical depression.” It is a real illness. It is not a sign of a person’s weakness or a character flaw. You can’t “snap out of” clinical depression. Most people who experience depression need treatment to get better.
When you’re depressed it’s hard to believe that anything could possibly help you. It feels like everything is hopeless, and that therapy will probably be a waste of time too. One of the most insidious and destructive aspects of depression is that it tricks people into believing that there is no hope and no help.
