Depression robs us of joy. It makes things that once were fun, lifeless and dull. Depression makes it hard to think clearly and efficiently. We get slow, sluggish, irritable, and exhausted. It can rob us of sleep or make us sleep 15 hours a day. Antidepressant medications can help. Some clients choose a combination of medication and therapy. Others choose therapy alone. Cognitive/behavioral therapy is one approach I use in treating depression. What we think dictates how we feel. Learning to identify self-sabotaging thoughts leads to changing those thoughts. This, in turn, can lead to recapturing the joy that depression has taken away.
