"It's hard to describe in symptoms I guess. I wake up with a feeling of dread. Sunday nights are especially the worst knowing I have a new work week ahead of me. I finally manage to get out of bed and get ready for the day. People ask me how I'm doing and I say, "I'm fine." What else am I supposed to say?"
While many of us don't experience full on depressive episodes that keep us from functioning, all of us experience varying degrees of depressive feelings over the course of our lifetime. That's why we say we work with existential depression. Who doesn't go through seasons of major questioning? Whether it's wondering how to feel more purposeful through work, battling out questions of intimacy post break-up, or otherwise experiencing the "f*ck this, I just want to stay in bed" vibe, we hear you. Sometimes our depression is situational. Maybe you're moving through an unclear time of transition. Or maybe you're feeling sensitive to the clock and age as you question your place and purpose in the world. Sometimes our depression has a lot to do with our story and the things we've been through. We often don't realize the impact our narrative has on our emotions.
It's also hard because often times we "know" we should do certain things to help us stimulate a better mood but depression robs us of our energy and motivation. It's a real catch-22. At MT, we understand the weight of this emotional experience. There are many reasons we can become depressed. We take our time in getting to know the ins and outs of the nature of your depression and empower you with skills and genuine support to help you move through the hard times.
