Major Depressive Disorder

Major Depressive Disorder

Major Depressive Disorder is a mental health condition in which an individual feels persistent sadness and a loss of interest/motivation in doing things.  Major Depressive Disorder may present as an internal struggle that sounds like the following:

  • I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
  • I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
  • I hate who I am these days.
  • I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
  • I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
  • I want to change my situation but have no motivation to change it.
  • My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.

If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.  I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help.

Major Depressive Disorder can affect an individuals life in many ways such as:

  • Romantic relationships
  • Friendships
  • Social gatherings
  • Work environment
  • College life

I understand the social stigmas that come with being labeled as depressed, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.
