Are You Feeling Depressed?

Are you having a hard time getting out of bed? Are you sleeping 12 hours a day and still wake up feeling exhausted? Do you no longer enjoy the things that used to bring you pleasure? Does life feel uninteresting, uninspiring, and monotonous? You want to show up and be present for your friends, family, and work but you are running on fumes and have nothing left to give. You may be struggling with feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, lack of motivation, resignation, and dread. 

You may feel like you are weighted down by a heavy, wet blanket and the little things in life take a huge amount of effort to accomplish. You may want to isolate yourself even though you feel lonely in your pain. Making progress in life feels like walking through mud with a 40-pound backpack. You wonder if there is something deeply wrong with you and you are consumed by thoughts of guilt and feelings of shame. At this point, you are doubting your capabilities, lovability, and worthiness.

“And then one day you find yourself on a bench in the sun and you close your eyes and lean your head back and you realize you’re okay.”

Cheryl Strayed

You are not alone. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 21 million adults in America experienced depression in 2020. That is 8.4% of the adult population. If you live in the Seattle, Tacoma, and Bellevue areas, you are even more likely to feel depressed than the national average. According to the US Census Bureau, one in two Seattle-area adults felt depressed in November of 2020.
