Depression, Survive it

I continue to be saddened by the recent death of Robin Williams.  Not only because of the huge loss of one who brought so much laughter to so many, but because his death is one more example of the devastation caused by the illness of depression.  There was a time when the word cancer was whispered in secret because no one understood it.  Likewise, the illness of depression.  It is too often an illness suffered in secretiveness, a hidden illness.  It’s not necessary that those suffering with depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder be public about it.  It is critical that people suffering with emotional disorders get professional help privately and that they commit to suicide not being an option along with having a plan about what to do if thoughts and feelings become overwhelming.  Depression can be deadly.  Encourage people you love to get treatment, get treatment for yourself for the people who love you.

Depression in relationships

This is a wonderful analogy that describes symptoms of depression and how it can affect your life and relationships.  It illustrates that depression is common and manageable by taking some proactive steps and getting the right help.  Cognitive therapy has been proven as an effective way to manage depression.  When you add cognitive aspects into relationship work you can manage depression and include your partner in the healing process.  Many therapists treat depression individually.  If your partner is willing they can be taught how to participate in your recovery.  Either way, you don’t have to carry the “black dog” alone.
