What Depression Entails

depression

Depression is a multifaceted mental health disorder that severely influences a person’s mood, thinking, and daily functionality. It is marked by a deep sense of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness that lingers. This condition goes beyond the usual mood swings, persisting and significantly affecting one’s life.

Originating from various genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological sources, depression can be prompted by life-changing events, health issues, or emerge without an apparent cause. Recognizing depression as a serious, treatable medical condition is essential. It is not indicative of personal weakness or a character defect but a critical health issue.

Symptoms of Depression

Depression’s manifestations are diverse, affecting individuals emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Symptoms include but are not limited to:

Emotional Signs:

  • Constant feelings of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness
  • Irritability or frustration over minor matters
  • Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
  • Anxiety, agitation, or restlessness
  • Feelings of worthlessness, excessive guilt, or self-blame

Physical Signs:

  • Extreme tiredness and lack of energy, making even small tasks difficult

  • Appetite changes, leading to weight loss or gain

  • Sleep issues, such as insomnia or oversleeping

  • Unexplained physical complaints like headaches or back pain

Cognitive Signs:

  • Difficulty concentrating, making decisions, or remembering

  • Slower thinking or movement

  • Thoughts of death, suicidal ideation, or suicide attempts

  • Struggling with routine responsibilities

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
