If you are dragging yourself around -- no energy, no pleasure in life, overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, helplessness or worthlessness, your mind may be telling you there is no hope. But the opposite is true. Depression is very treatable. Actually 80-90 percent of people with depression report feeling better if they go for assessment, therapy, and, if appropriate, medication. Let an experienced therapist guide you. When depression lifts, your energy and interest in life increases, you restore curiosity and creativity, you're less irritable and hard on those around you, you make healthier decisions, and you're grateful again for the beauty, humor, and love in your life.
