What is depression?

Depression is not just a form of intense sadness. It is a problem that affects both the brain body and immune system.

However, a clinically depressed individual locates this sense of emptiness or badness in themselves.

I started getting depressed after a lost my husband. After he died, people kept saying that I would start to feel better soon, but this never happened. I would sit all day watching daytime television barely having the energy to switch over the channel. That’s when my parents said I needed to go to therapy. At first, I didn’t want to go and resisted talking to anybody about how I felt, but little by little Tony helped me, he just listened didn’t judge. A master got through boxes and boxes of tissues when I was in his office, but it never seemed to matter. I’m starting to feel better now.
