Depression Therapy at The Carpenter's House
When people think of the word depression, the words hopelessness, loneliness, extreme sadness, and even suicide come to mind. There is much more to feeling depressed than just those words. Depression can be experienced throughout a lifetime, at intervals in life, or appearing within a short period of time. It can be due to traumatic events and experiences from childhood, current events or without any known cause. The feelings of anger, agitation, and irritability can be experienced suddenly or for long periods of time. Others describe depression as being powerless and having no energy throughout the day, even when one sleeps many hours. Depression can separate one from their normal relationships. A common characteristic of people who live with depression is suffering from low self-esteem. Feeling an overall sense of hopelessness, living day to day with no personal meaning, and experiencing life through a mental “fog” are also ways that depression is described.
