Do you feel overwhelmed with negative feelings? Do you feel dissatisfied, guilty, angry, or worthless? Has mid life brought up questions of “what next?” Despite success in your life, do you now feel lost, purposeless and/or empty? Do you feel constant pressure and irritability? Do you feel like it’s difficult to envision a happy future for yourself? Are you grieving a big loss in your life and need help processing a traumatic event? Have you been trying to self medicate symptoms of depression with alcohol or other substances? It may be time to address your symptoms of depression. Often times, these symptoms can be due to an underlying medical condition.
Depression is a condition when people experience low moods, a lack of energy, and poor concentration.
Other symptoms of clinical depression include: losing your interests, fatigue, irritability, sadness, guilt, having thoughts about death or suicide, loss of sex drive, anxiety, difficulty in making decision, tiredness, sleep problems, physical slowness, unexplained aches and pains, loss of appetite or increased appetite.
Your feelings of depression might be preventing you from being able to fully engage in work, be present for your family, or live a productive life. If you or someone you care about is experiencing these symptoms, please feel free to contact Dr. Ascher.
