There can be so many reasons as to why someone has plunged into the depths of depression. Sometimes it can be an outside event that has happened, or an accumulation of life’s experiences, that has been too much to bare. Perhaps due to personal issues relating to family, or relationships. There are also times when you might not be sure as to why your mood is so low.
Antidepressants are often what’s prescribed to help ‘cure’ the feelings of depression, and whilst they might alleviate some of the symptoms you might be experiencing, a tablet can never heal the source of the problem. That will always remain, unless it can be dealt with.
There are degrees of depression. When it’s at its worst and you cannot lift your mood, cannot see a future, and stop being able to function to undertake even the necessary duties of life, then this is when you should consult with your G.P. or an organisation that is specifically set up to deal with depression. This internal state of depression that can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the actual brain itself must be dealt with by a specialist, often using medication in conjunction with therapy.
Quite often though, there might be external reasons, or triggers for your depression, this is much easier to deal with. If there are reasons behind your depression, even if they are an accumulation of events that if they stood on their own wouldn’t have caused the same effect as they have done by building one on top of the other, then there is a very good chance that this can be dealt with through hypnotherapy and psychotherapy.
