Depression is an illness and people who suffer from it may feel extreme sadness for a considerable length of time, may lose interest in life and daily routine can be affected. It often arises in response to a major event such as the loss of a family member or unemployment. Recognising the symptoms of depression at an early stage and obtaining help is the best way to avoid developing severe depression.
The symptoms of depression include:
• Unhappiness which can often be worse in the morning.
• Tiredness, inability to sleep or excessive sleeping
• Change in weight (loss or gain in weight)
• Loss of appetite
• Negative view on the world, loss of interest in things which were previously enjoyable.
• Low energy levels
• Poor concentration
• Loss of sex drive
Although some may be able to get better with little help, we recommend that you seek professional advice and support if you feel you may be depressed. At The Frater Clinic, a GP can assess your condition and offer a counsellor and psychotherapist who will work with you to overcome your depression and minimise the risk of it recurring. Do not hesitate to get in touch as depression can be treated very effectively. It can also be determined whether your condition is due to a previously unknown factor such as a side effect of medication or another illness. A combination of methods is often the most effective way of combating depression and the appropriate treatment will depend on the severity of the illness.
