Depressive disorders make one feel exhausted, worthless, helpless, and hopeless.
Dealing with depression, the negative thoughts and feelings can be too much for some people and they just feel like giving up.
It is important to realise that these negative views are part of the depression and typically do not accurately reflect the actual circumstances.
Therefore, it is really important to understand that negative thinking fades as treatment begins to take effect.
In the meantime:
- Set realistic goals in light of the depression and assume a reasonable amount of responsibility
- Break large tasks into small ones, set some priorities, and do what you can as you can
- Try to be with other people and to confide in someone; it is usually better than being alone and secretive
- Participate in activities that may make you feel better
- Mild exercise, going to a movie, a ballgame, or participating in religious, social, or other activities may help
- Expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately Feeling better takes time
- It is advisable to postpone important decisions until the depression has lifted. Before deciding to make a significant transition-change, get married or divorced-discuss it with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation
- People rarely “snap out of” a depression. But they can feel a little better day-by-day. Remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment
- Let your family and friends help you
