But every time my wounded self told me that there is too much to do and that I will never get it all done, my body got tense. And, as I well know, tension indicates that I’m telling myself a lie. But what was the lie? There WAS too much to do, and there WASN’T enough time to get it all done. So I went to my Guidance,...

Childhood Depression and Anxiety: Time to Seek Professional Help

Childhood depression and anxiety are often overlooked. A widely held belief that children could not be depressed has recently been contradicted by the American Psychiatric Association. Depression and anxiety in childhood is usually focused on a single subject. This can cause much stress and disturbance in their lives. Childhood depression is an overwhelming sadness that envelops your child every day for weeks or even months. It is a paralyzing lack of joy that prevents them from enjoying their life or family. Childhood depression is an urgent mental health issue. There is strong research to suggest that children can be buffered against developing depression by learning how to successfully process and manage adversity such as frustrations and disappointments. Childhood depression is largely marked by the same diagnostic criteria as adult depression. However, it is only in the last thirty years that mainstream psychiatry has accepted childhood depression as a valid diagnostic category Symptoms include looking and feeling constantly unhappy, crying a lot or being quiet and withdrawn. But the vast majority of children can be helped. Symptoms of depression are different with kids than they are with adults. The National Institute of Mental Health advises parents and professionals to be vigilant of the following: pretending to be sick, school refusal or fear of a parent dying.

However you choose – do not get started in trying antidepressant drugs to conquer your depression… I have battled with depression symptoms for a pretty long time and tried out lots of totally different treatments along the way to get rid of my own psychological illness. I experienced most emotions of sadness, helplessness, and also hopelessness the majority of the time. I had been incredibly irritable and the emotions wouldn’t go away. I have seen many more psychiatrists than I want to remember and no matter if you are facing Chronic Depression or bipolar disorder I should pre warn you that psychiatrists tend to be only there to get a person on health professional prescribed medication, particularly antidepressants, which is ok if that’s simply you would like, but you should really be aware of some facts. Antidepressants do not work for everyone the exact same way. Every person’s body acts in a different way to them. They may help for a short time not to mention get you through the very terrible times, but unfortunately they are not normally intended to be taken for the rest of your life time. This particular treatment could be helpful and also work for certain folks however the truth of the matter is it may take years to uncover the right medicine or combination of meds that will do the job for you....
