You feel stuck. Your motivation has been lacking. Things you enjoyed before just don’t seem enjoyable anymore. Even your friends are mentioning that you are “just not yourself” anymore.

Depression shows up in a variety of ways and tends to be a dark cloud you just can’t shake. No matter how many supplements you take, self-help books you read, or even talking to your friends, depression will feel like you are the problem. And, it feels like you won’t get better. While everyone can feel sad or upset at times, depression is different. It can feel very heavy and hopeless. Stuck. Empty.
