And suddenly she is there: the depression

Actually, everything should be great. I have a job that interests me, a partner who supports me, a beautiful home. Actually. But why do I sometimes secretly cry in the shower and feel so incredibly empty?
Maybe I could meet my friends more often. But I can not really do that anymore. Somehow there is no energy left at the end of the day. But I would just have to pick up the phone again and just call. But even that is too much.
I get up in the morning, go to work, come back home and maybe fall in front of the TV in front of the TV. There is only the desire to sleep. Perfect listlessness. I work. Outward. For the society. But not for me. Not inside. There is said emptiness, loneliness, listlessness and the inability to do anything for me. All symptoms of depression. But it can also include numbness, depression, hopelessness, loss of interests, feelings of guilt, feelings of worthlessness, anger, lack of concentration, indecision, fears, self-doubt, fatigue, sleep disorders, weight loss or weight gain. For a depression is not always just sadness, but can be so much more and is therefore not recognized by many people and not treated accordingly.

There is a way out – with the help of a talk therapy. However, if the cause is not investigated, the symptoms may worsen. If detected early, depressive illness can be completely cured in most people. The classic method of combating is talk therapy. And there's really no reason to be worried about going to therapy. After all, you can also be treated medically if you have physical problems, so why not with mental health. And talking has not hurt anyone yet. In addition, therapies are now often dubbed and understood as coaching. And above all, you are not alone. Almost one in five people in Europe suffer from depression at least once in their lives. Unfortunately, women suffer almost twice as often as men. High time to look after yourself again.
