Depression can be a debilitating condition, affecting every aspect of your life, work, relationships and socially, it can often lead to other illnesses such as anxiety, addiction, and more.
You may experience days, weeks, or even months of the most extreme sadness, and its these feelings that can take over your everyday routine, even getting the motivation for getting out of bed can be difficult.
Depression is however surprisingly common, with around 1 in 10 people experiencing it at some point in their life. However, its only when this feeling becomes prolonged and impacts their lives, that people begin to realise they have a problem. Even then, many do nothing about it, and go undiagnosed as they try to cope with the stresses of life, further spiralling down into deeper or longer bouts of depression. Many also believe that depression is not a real illness and admitting it is a form of weakness or admission of failure, whereas in reality the opposite is actually true.
