Sumary of 7 Ways to Maintain Relationships When You’re Depressed:
- There are numerous types of antidepressants, and generally, they can relieve symptoms in a few weeks or months to provide additional support while you work with a therapist to incorporate other strategies.
- Studies show that about 75% of people with depression have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep4. About 15% of people with depression have hypersomnia, meaning they feel overly tired even with adequate sleep.
- If you’re not in therapy, journaling may help you identify some of the negative thoughts common with depression, Dr. Annunziato says.
- Or maybe messaging your friend on Instagram feels easier because you can send funny posts that may trigger an easy conversation.
