Everyone occasionally feels sad or down, but these feelings are typically short-lived and pass within a few days. A diagnosis of depression means the sadness is persistent and interferes with your daily life; it causes pain for you and your loved ones. Many people with anxiety & depression never seek treatment, but it is vital to get help because depression is treatable. Depression is marked by persistent feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and fatigue, among other things. It is important to go to a Psychiatrist and get a proper diagnosis because often times the symptoms of depression can mirror those of ADHD. A common indicator of ADHD is an inability to concentrate along with psychomotor agitation (unintentional/purposeless motions), which are also both symptoms of depression. Having a proper evaluation that includes a full history is essential to receiving an accurate diagnosis, in order to receive the proper treatment. Depression is treatable, there is hope and we can help you. Give us a call to set up your consultation today, to start feeling better and regain control of your life.
