Everybody’s battle against depression is different – but regardless of how you fight, it’s always difficult to feel better when depressed. Unlike a challenge you can face head-on, depression is sly, cunning, and never plays fair. It worms its way into the brain and convinces you of terrible things. Bad thoughts that make it harder and harder to do anything.
Clinical depression is a serious and pervasive mood disorder. It causes feelings of sadness, hopelessness, helplessness, and worthlessness. Depression can be mild to moderate with symptoms of apathy, little appetite, difficulty sleeping, low self-esteem, and low-grade fatigue. Or it can be more severe.
