Dealing with depression

If you feel incapable of moving off the couch; if you’re not sleeping well or your eating habits have changed; if you feel sad most of the time, it’s hard to concentrate, and you’re noticing your body doesn’t feel well, you may be depressed. First get a physical to rule out any treatable underlying condition.
If you get a clean bill of health and still feel really lethargic, it’s time to make an appointment with a psychiatrist. Depression is the most common and untreated illness in our world, and that’s literally a crying shame because it is a very treatable condition. Medication and talk therapy can change your life and give you back the person you used to be.

Thanks for this informative post about depression. The remedy is in our hands itself. As soon as we identify the symptoms of depression we must try to help ourselves to deal with depression. And we must help others also by suggested remedies so that they can fight depression effectively.
