The debilitating effects of depression can cause misery to so many people. For some it can mean that day-to-day living really feels like a mountain to climb, whilst for others it can lead to a desire to simply withdraw from life. You may be experiencing living feeling like you’ve a big cloud over you, or what some describe as the ‘Black Dog’.

The reasons for experiencing depression are extremely diverse. It may be that you’ve experienced a loss or bereavement, or that you feel you’re under so much pressure in life that you’re struggling to cope.

You might be stuck in a dead-end job which you hate, or can’t find work. Physical problems and illness might be what has led to the depressed feelings you’re experiencing. Or maybe you’re stuck in a relationship in which you feel trapped.

Each person experiences the effects of these everyday struggles differently, but when it feels like there is no way out, then you can get a sense that you’re stuck, on your own, and that nothing can or will change. This can bring a sense of hopelessness to you.
