Depression

Depression Hurts...
Dr. Susie can help!

  • Have you recently lost interest in activities that used to be pleasurable?
  • Have your sleeping habits been interrupted?
  • Have you had any changes in your appetite?
  • Do you feel helpless or hopeless?
  • Are you having trouble concentrating or remembering?
  • Do you feel restless or irritable?
  • Are you feeling unusual or unnecessary guilt?
  • Are you withdrawing socially?
  • Do you feel anxious or empty?
  • Do others tell you that your emotional expression appears absent?
  • Do you suffer from persistent physical problems more often than usual that are not responding to treatment?
  • Are you experiencing thoughts of suicide or death?
  • Have you attempted suicide?
  • Have you started using drugs/alcohol recently to avoid your sadness?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions you may be suffering from a mood disorder.

Depression can cause both emotional and physical pain. Many people tend to seek treatment from a medical doctor for their physical pain while ignoring the underlying psychological problems. Thus, the depression may go undiagnosed.
