Even if it sometimes feels like that. Are you catastrophising? Can you see things as setbacks, not failures? This idea was new to me, that depression had these biological, psychological, and social components. Previously I'd only been prescribed medication and done some cognitive behavioural therapy and talking therapy. But I hadn't understood how major changes to routine — as well as medication and therapy — would be necessary for real change.
And I definitely didn't know how important the social component for example, connecting with others was when it came to treatment. In hospital we learned why it was important to fill our days with routine that resulted in Body Care exercise, healthy eating, rest, treating the illness , Achievement work, chores, study , Connection friends, family, community , and Enjoyment play, fun, pleasure.
A routine that covers all four BACEs releases the good chemicals in the brain: exercise releases endorphins , achievement releases dopamine , connecting with people releases oxytocin , and physical activity releases serotonin. Filling out this BACE worksheet became a simple way to think about self-care and the different biopsychosocial bits in a concrete way. In hospital, side effects from trying many different medication combinations was sometimes more uncomfortable than the depression itself.
Depression wants me all to itself. Depression says I deserve to be alone. Depression knows I can't get out of bed or shower to get ready for a commitment ceremony. Depression says, "Don't worry! I'll come to you. Now when I feel like hiding from everyone, I ask myself if it's because depression wants me to stay unwell.
When family, friends, colleagues reach out to see if I'm OK, I remind myself that once I'm spending time with them — Connection, Enjoyment — I generally feel better. I also remind myself that it's all the people around me — family, friends, colleagues, nurses, doctors, specialists — and their companionship, unwavering care, and kindnesses that make it possible to live a life and not merely endure a condition. Mine are extreme tiredness, avoidance, cancelling plans, isolating, and letting self-care slip — not eating properly, not being able to shower because I can't move, not being able to leave the house.
It's helpful to tell people I trust what my signs are — it increases the chances of getting help sooner if others observe a change in my behaviour before I do. I can even plan ahead and be specific about how I'd like to be told about this, for example a text message, a chat over coffee, a message iced on a cake "Early warning signs! On the 17th day in hospital I wrote in my notebook: "I think the sad thing is you lose a sense of dignity for yourself. The depressed mind a can't do the things it knows are good for itself, b will beat itself up over this failure, c appreciates the irony of these two things on a good day.
Sometimes now I pause and ask myself, "Is this the depression? Talking to a psychologist, reading about helpful strategies, exploring digital mental health treatment such as Mindspot — this all helps too. For a long time, I suppressed uncomfortable emotions like sadness, thinking that would mean the depression would go away. But it turns out when we suppress one emotion, we also suppress our ability to feel all other emotions, like joy. It meant that for a long time I'd avoid things that moved me deeply — like music — in case they made me too emotional.
Now I know emotions exist to tell us important things about ourselves and the situation we're in, for example, what we need, what we value, what we love. In hospital I thought of this line often. I knew about the big things — taking medication, seeing the doctors. So, what were my small things? I now know them to be a cup of something warm, something beautiful to read, and sitting on the floor it reminds me of my grandmother, who would sit on the floor with me and my brother.

That's compassion," says author and clinical psychologist Christopher Germer. As I write this, I'm at the lower end of the vitality scale. Some mornings are still a struggle. I can go to work most of the time. I move slower than I'd like to.
Now, though, I can tell people the truth when I'm not doing so well. Sometimes they tell me they're feeling the same way. And I can almost always joke with friends who are also depressed. I love asking them with a straight face, "Have you tried exercising? In many ways, recovery is like learning how to function as a new person while at the same time learning exactly who this new person is.

Four-year outcome for cognitive behavioral treatment of residual symptoms in major depression.
When someone has a recurrence, over their lifetime, the average recurrences that they experience is five to nine. There is a high risk of relapse when someone is going through depression recovery. To reduce the risk, it is imperative that they go through ongoing maintenance.
Therapy has a very good track record when it comes to preventing both recurrence and relapse. The type of depression, how depression feels for someone and the individual ultimately determine which type of therapy will be the most beneficial. One of the most common types of therapy is talk therapy.
It allows people to talk about what is happening in their life right now. This type of therapy also helps them to learn how to better respond to events and stressors in a different way. Because of this, they are able to reduce how severe their symptoms and reduce their risk of a recurrence.
A great form of talk therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy CBT. When you are going through this type of therapy, it helps to explore deeper beliefs and thought patterns. During a session, the focus is not always just the current circumstances that someone is dealing with. If depression is mild to moderate, this therapy tends to be very effective.
It can also be beneficial for people who are experiencing severe depression as long as the therapist guiding the session has a high level of expertise. Those undergoing CBT are encouraged to look at the specific triggers that are contributing to their depression. Then, the therapist will help them to look at their thought patterns and beliefs as they relate to these triggers.
Once all of this is accomplished, patients learn how to take their thoughts that are negative and turn them into ones that are positive. After learning new coping methods, people are able to make life choices that are affirming and positive. When someone is making choices that are more positive, their triggers and stressors are far less likely to cause them to experience the negative issues associated with making choices during bouts of depression.
There are studies that show that when medication is the only treatment, the risk of relapse is about 60 percent where this figure drops to 30 percent when they use CBT for treatment,. Unless a person with depression also has a dependence on alcohol or drugs, experts usually do not recommend that they use group therapy. However, therapists often encourage the loved ones if a depressed person to work as a team so that they can help to ensure that they keep up with their maintenance plan and recovery.
ECT is a highly invasive technique but is effective for treating medication-resistant depression and other forms of severe mental illness; schizophrenia, bipolar mania, and psychosis. Patients usually feel relief from symptoms after the first session, but doctors typically prescribe three sessions a week for four weeks.
Seizures cause increased heart rate and blood pressure, and if patients have heart problems, they should not undergo treatment. General anesthesia and muscle relaxants are administered for ECT treatments. Patients are unconscious and do not feel any pain. They can usually return to school or work after a brief recovery period. Long-term side effects may include short or long-term memory loss, but this is rare. Short-term effects can include confusion, jaw pain, headache, nausea, or fatigue.
These usually subside after about an hour, although some patients may need up to a day to recover. This is a new treatment option and is much less invasive than ECT. A low-dose electrical pulse is used to stimulate certain neural pathways in the targeted brain region. Patients are usually prescribed four or five sessions per week for four to six weeks. Side effects are mild, including headaches or tingling of the scalp where the coil was placed and are typically resolved with over-the-counter pain relief medication.
Most patients who undergo TMS for depression find relief from their symptoms.
