What is Depression and How Online Therapy can help

Is scrolling through social media starting to feel like a drag? Remember how hyped you'd get for that weekend hike or how much fun you had catching up with friends on those weekend nights? Do these things just seem...meh now? These could be signs of something bigger.

Depression is more than just feeling sad. It's a significant hurdle that can disrupt your emotional well-being, thought patterns, and daily routines. While occasional low moods are a normal part of life, depression is a persistent weight that can steal the joy from your experiences and make it difficult to function at your best.

The good news is you don't have to suffer alone. There's help available! Talking to a therapist, medication, or even both can help you feel better and get back to enjoying life. Don't wait - reach out to a therapist today and take the first step towards feeling happy again.

Common Types of Depressions

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

This is a very common type of depression. It feels like you're stuck in a low mood, where things you used to enjoy just don't do it anymore. You might sleep more or less than usual, have trouble eating, and feel down on yourself for at least two weeks. Our therapists are here to listen, guide, and empower you on your journey back to feeling your best.

Persistent Depressive Disorder (PDD)

This type of depression is like a low hum in the background, lasting for at least a year. It might feel like you're always a little down, and things don't quite bring the same joy they used to. You might struggle with sleep or eating, and feel discouraged more often than not. Our therapists understand PDD, they'll listen without judgment and help you rediscover the joy and energy that might feel lost right now.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

This kind of depression comes and goes with the seasons, often hitting harder in winter. As the days get shorter, you might feel like your mood gets shorter too. You might crave more sleep, have trouble getting out of bed, and lose interest in things you normally enjoy.

Postpartum Depression (PPD)

This type of depression can show up after having a baby. It might feel different from the baby blues, lasting longer and making it harder to connect with your little one. You might feel extra tired, even after sleeping a lot, and struggle to find joy in things you used to love. Don't worry, this is a very real experience, and our online therapists can help you.

How does depression affect someone?

Professionally, depression can feel like a weight dragging you down at work. Focusing on tasks can be tough, and deadlines might feel impossible to meet. You might even start calling in sick more often because getting motivated just feels like too much. This can lead to strained relationships with coworkers and even affect your chances of getting that promotion you've been eyeing.

The impact on your personal life can be just as tough. Activities you used to love, like catching up with friends or watching a movie, might suddenly feel like a chore. Withdrawing from social connections can lead to loneliness, and depression can even mess with your sleep and appetite. You might find yourself sleeping all the time or struggling to get out of bed, and food might lose its appeal altogether.

The important thing to remember is that depression doesn't have to become your reality. The sooner you seek help, whether from a therapist or doctor, the sooner you can start feeling better and get back to enjoying work, socializing, and all the good things in life. Early intervention is key for managing depression and getting back to feeling better and living better.
