Depression Is Exhausting.
Depression is more than just “feeling down” or “being sad.” Here are only some of the things that depressed people experience:
- Dreading the day
- Feeling like a failure
- Feeling unlovable, and unlikeable
- Feeling like something is wrong with them
- Feeling anxious
- Feeling angry (and then guilty for being angry)
- Feeing exhausted, joyless, and numb
- Feeling hopeless that things can change
Depression is Isolating.
People with depression often feel very, very alone. It can seem like no one understands how real this is for you. When you try to talk about how you feel, you often wish you hadn’t. It feels so hard to be with people when you’re not okay, so you withdraw.
Your friends and family care, but they have no idea how to help you. Sometimes they even seem frustrated with you for “not being able to pull it together.” So you slog through your days, alone, with an aching heart, a mind full of anxieties, and a sense of dread about your future.
There is Hope, and There is Help For Depression
When you’re depressed it’s hard to believe that anything could possibly help you. It feels
like everything is hopeless, and that therapy will probably be a waste of time
One of the most insidious and destructive aspects of depression is that it tricks people into believing that there is no hope and no help.
Feeling hopeless, helpless, and pessimistic IS the experience of depression. So even though it might seem impossible to believe right now, the truth is that there is very effective treatment for depression.
It’s been proven by research to help for depression, it’s helped millions of people all around the world recover from depression, and it can help you, too.
Evidence-Based Therapy For Depression in Denver: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Research consistently shows that the most effective strategy for treating Depression is something called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This kind of therapy, used either with medication or on it’s own, has been found to be the best way to recover from Depression long-term.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps you in a few ways. First of all, it identifies the “depressive thoughts” that make you feel so badly. By re-training your brain to think about yourself, your life, and your opportunities in a healthier way, your mood will improve and you will become more resilient to life’s normal ups and downs.
CBT also focuses on behaviors. There are life-skills that create a life that make you less vulnerable to Depression. Everything from nutrition, to exercise, to relationships, to meaningful activities can be protective factors for Depression. Building healthy, happiness-generating routines and practices will help you manage Depression long term.
CBT incorporates many other techniques and training such as mindfulness skills, relaxation techniques, communication skills, coaching and problem solving. Working in all these areas teaches you how to make day-to-day changes that will empower you and make you less vulnerable to Depression–as well has help you build the kind of life you can feel happy about.
