“I’m not enjoying life anymore.” “I feel only emptiness around me.” “Sometimes I just sit there feeling listless and unconcerned.”
This or a similar experience is what people report of their everyday life when suffering from depression.
One feels dull and unable to do anything. There is a great lack of confidence. And when the smallest steps become difficult, the big goals fade more and more into the distance. Physiological impacts, such as sleeping disorders, constipation or fluctuations in weight, can reinforce psychological suffering.
It doesn’t matter whether the triggers are based on physiological fatigue, a thyroid disturbance or so-called endogenic depression.
