Rise Above It Pt.2
Do you drag through your day? Depression can make you feel too tired or weak to do anything. Daily activities such as getting dressed and doing dishes can seem overwhelming and exhausting. Not eating or eating an unhealthy diet can contribute to fatigue. Good nutrition, exercise, and sleep can help you fight it
Sometimes people feel as if their thinking processes have slowed down when they’re depressed. You may be easily distracted or find it difficult to concentrate. You may suddenly have trouble remembering things. You may have problems making decisions — as minor as what to wear in the morning or as major as problem-solving at work. The sudden onset of symptoms may be a warning of a relapse.
Suicidal thoughts are a very serious warning sign and could signify severe depression and be a risk factor for relapse. Some people think about suicide regularly. Others may start planning out suicide or how to harm themselves. People who feel hopeless and have lost interest in pleasurable activities are particularly at risk. If you or someone you know has suicidal thoughts or talks about suicide, seek immediate help from a doctor or psychiatrist.
