Depression can be a bit tricky to identify. There are many definitions. Still, when there is a lack of interest in life, and a lack of passion, it is usually pretty evident. Often, but not always, anxiety will accompany depression.
The good news is that there are many ways to treat these problems. While there is no universal cure for depression and anxiety, we can work to find a way to manage them in your life. Just making the decison to work on these issues often begins a process of emergence from the fear and pain of depression.
