Feeling sad, withdrawn, irritable, and tired (or having insomnia) is not a fun feeling to have, yet more people than you think suffer from these symptoms on a daily basis. Mind over matter is too simple and antidepressants alone don’t always help. So where do you go from there?
I believe in an eclectic approach to help people through; Looking at the past to find out where the depression stems from while taking steps to address current symptoms which can be affecting relationships with friends, family, and at work.
This is not an issue to go about fighting alone. Getting help from a therapist (or other qualified professional) that you feel comfortable with can be a key to your happiness. If therapy is the step that you feel is the best one to take, find a therapist who can meet your needs. If you are not able to get motivated to see a therapist at their office, find an online therapist.
As with any other problem, it is always best to consult with your medical doctor first to make sure that there is no underlying medical issue to your problem.
