Understanding Depression

depression treatment in the bronx

Depression is a severe mental health condition that significantly affects how an individual feels, thinks, and handles daily activities. Characterized by a persistent feeling of sadness or a lack of interest, depression can profoundly disrupt one’s life.

This mental health condition results from a complex interplay of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. It can be triggered by a significant life event or a physical illness, and sometimes, it may develop without a clear initiating event.

Recognizing depression as a legitimate medical condition is crucial, emphasizing that it is not a sign of personal weakness or a character flaw but a critical health issue.

Identifying Symptoms of Depression

Depression manifests through various emotional, physical, and cognitive symptoms, including:

Emotional Signs:

  • Continuous sadness, emptiness, tearfulness, or feelings of hopelessness
  • Irritability or unnecessary anger, even over trivial matters
  • Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, such as hobbies or sports
  • Anxiety, agitation, or restlessness
  • Excessive guilt or feelings of worthlessness, often focusing on past failures

Physical Signs:

  • Overall tiredness or a lack of energy that makes even simple tasks difficult
  • Significant appetite and weight changes
  • Sleep issues, like insomnia or oversleeping
  • Unexplained physical problems such as chronic pain or headaches

Cognitive Signs:

  • Trouble with concentration, decision-making, or memory
  • Slowed thinking or reduced movement
  • Regular thoughts of death, suicidal ideation, or suicide attempts
  • Inability to perform daily tasks effectively

I have a great down to earth provider. All of my appointments are virtual so I don’t have to schedule around them. The help center is actually extremely helpful and gets messages to your doctor with a response usually the same day. I highly recommend these services. Also they take insurance unlike most virtual doctors that cost hundreds just for a medication refill appointment.

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!
