Get past depression and start enjoying life again.
All of us feel sad, lonely or depressed at times. It’s a normal part of life. But when those feelings become overwhelming and last for long periods of time, it may be a sign of clinical depression.
Feeling empty, isolated or depressed? You’re not alone.
Here’s a sobering fact. 10% of American adults or 31 million people are living with major depression. Some people describe it as living in a black hole or have the feeling of impending doom. Others feel lifeless, empty and apathetic. Men in particular often feel angry, aggressive and restless.
How do you know if you’re depressed?
Depression varies from person to person, but there are common signs and symptoms. You may find it extremely difficult to get out of bed in the morning. Insomnia is a common complaint. You’ve gained or lost a lot of weight. You feel helpless and hopeless. And the things you’ve always enjoyed doing just aren’t fun anymore. These are just a few of the signs of depression.

“In January 2012, I began experiencing major depression, anxiety, and psychotic symptoms. I couldn’t work or do much of anything. I went to the hospital and got treatment for the psychotic symptoms, which was successful, but needed help for the other issues. I was referred to Dr. Dzudza through the Blue Cross/Blue Shield network and am now back to my regular self. It’s great! I have recommended Dr. D to a friend who is now a patient.”
