Depression pushing others away

Depression can make you feel like you’re a burden to others.

For example, if a friend or family member is depressed, you might feel guilty. You might worry that they’ll be better when you’re better. Or you might feel like you’re never enough.

It’s normal to feel this way. But depression is treatable, and it won’t last forever.

If you’re struggling with depression, here are some things you can try to help you feel better.

Talk to your friends and family about your feelings

Your friends and family might not be able to help you at first. But they’re not the only people who can help.

It might be hard to talk about your feelings with the people you live with or your boss. But it’s important to talk about your feelings.

Talking about your feelings helps you feel less alone and more in control. It also can help you feel better.

You can share your feelings with the people in your life who can listen to you without judging you. These people might be your partner, your children, your friends, or your romantic partner.

You can also talk to a therapist. They can help you find the best treatment for your depression and get you back on track with your life.

Get plenty of sleep

Depression makes it hard to sleep. You might have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.

If you have trouble sleeping, try to keep your bedroom as calm and quiet as possible.

It might also help to keep your room dark. This can help you feel more alert while you’re sleeping.

You can also try meditation or taking a hot bath before bed. These things will help you relax and fall asleep more easily.

Get plenty of exercise

Depression can make it hard to exercise. But exercising can help you feel better.

Exercise can help you:

  • Feel more alert and get more exercise
  • Feel less anxious
  • Boost your mood and improve your self-esteem

It’s important to do things that you enjoy. If you’re having trouble getting started, try to think of something you’d like to do.

If you can’t think of anything, that’s OK. It’s normal for you to feel overwhelmed at first.

What if I can’t get out of bed?

Sometimes, depression can keep you up at night. You might feel tired and anxious all day. But you can also get tired easily.

If you can’t get out of bed or at least get up and get dressed, try to get out of bed as quickly as you can. Then, try to start as soon as possible.

You might not be able to do everything you used to. But you can still do things you enjoy, even if it’s only for a short time.

What if I can’t think of anything to do?

Sometimes, depression makes it hard to think of anything to do.

If this happens, try to get out of bed and start doing something. If you can’t do that, you might be just as happy to lie in bed and watch TV.

What if I have a lot of energy?

Sometimes, depression makes you feel like you can do anything. But that’s not true.

If you have a lot of energy, you might feel like you can do anything. Or you might have trouble sleeping. This can make it hard to get enough rest.

If you can’t get enough sleep at night or you’re worried about sleep, talk to your doctor. They can help you figure out what’s causing your energy, or lack of it, and how to manage it.

What if I have a lot of pain?

Sometimes, depression can make you feel like you can’t do anything. But it’s not true.

Some people with depression can’t get out of bed or even get out of their chair.

But you can still do things you enjoy. If you have pain, try to focus on your pain not all of your depression.

If you feel like you have energy, get out of bed and do something simple, like eating a snack.

How can I help myself?

Depression can make it hard to help yourself. But there are things you can do to help yourself.

You can try these things:

  • Ask your doctor about antidepressant drugs. They might be more effective for you than other medications.
  • Talk to your children about your depression. They might not understand what you’re going through. But they need to know that you aren’t alone.
  • Talk to a therapist. They can help you find ways to manage your depression.
  • Work with a therapist to develop a treatment plan. They can help you figure out what’s causing your depression and how to treat it.

When to see a doctor?

It’s important to see a doctor if you think you might have depression. They can help you figure out what’s causing your depression, and they can help you get treatment.

Talking to a doctor can help you feel better and know that you’re not alone.

If you think you have depression, it’s important to get help. Here are some things to ask your doctor about.

What medications are used to treat depression?

Your doctor might prescribe some antidepressants.

Antidepressants are the most commonly prescribed medications for depression. They can help with most of the symptoms of depression.

Antidepressants can make it hard to get out of bed. So if you can’t get out of bed, it’s hard to get up and get dressed.

In some cases, antidepressants can make it hard to concentrate. This can make it hard to work and do other things you enjoy.

Antidepressants might help with both of these things. They can also help you feel better in your daily life.

Antidepressants can make it hard to sleep. So if you have trouble sleeping, it can make it hard to get enough rest at night.

Antidepressants can also make it hard to eat. If you eat a lot (which can happen with depression), it can become hard to lose weight.
