More than Sadness
Living with Clinical Depression
After a suicide attempt at the age of 44,, I was diagnosed as having clinical depression. My life was full of depression for quite some time. My depression has been managed with therapy and antidepressants. Still, right now, I’m in a depressive episode.
Everyone has felt down, lonely, or depressed at some point in their lives. But clinical depression is more than a mood. It affects your body. It affects your mental health and how you cope with it. It’s like a huge wave that overwhelms you.
This episode is about clinical depression. Everyone experiences it differently. It’s possible to share your experiences with depression-stricken friends. However, it is also possible for people who aren’t suffering from the condition or know someone who does, to gain some perspective.
The episode ends with some suggestions for people who can help those suffering from this disease.
