Depression has many faces.
Low-functioning depression includes symptoms such as withdrawal from friends or favorite activities, crying, hopelessness, or trouble sleeping. People with high-functioning depression may seem like they have it together all the time, but on the inside they are experiencing feelings of intense sadness, irritability, and feel out of it. And, they may experience a need to be perfect all the time.
Because there is a stigma attached many people keep their sadness hidden and suffer alone. Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide leading to not being able to carry out daily functions and possibly other illnesses.
The process of recovery can feel scary and frustrating but you don’t have to go through it alone.
