We will have a candid conversation about the signs, symptoms and prevalence of Depression.
Clinical depression goes by many names-- depression, "the blues," biological depression,
major depression. But it all refers to the same thing: feeling sad and depressed for weeks or months on end ( not just a passing blue mood), accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, lack of energy, and taking little or no pleasure in things that gave you joy in the past. A person who's depressed just "can't get moving" and feels completely unmotivated to do just about anything. Even simple things--
like getting dressed in the morning or eating--become large obstacles.
