Depression can be debilitating. It is a cloud that comes over you that saps your motivation, your joy of living, your ability to think clearly and make good decisions, and sometimes even your will to keep going. Learning the causes of this, and practicing strategies that keep you from the downward spiral can provide a real sense of stability, and allow control in an area that before seemed powerless.
