that actually depends on how you handle life if you just succumb to it and wait for it to just go off it's less likely to disappear
No, the hard parts of life will always end, if you solve the cause of the depression it will go away
As long as you get the right help and support-no. It will take a while to get out of it and it is possible you may relapse, but you can get over it.
No, you won't. You have to work hard and if you will, depression will go away. Some days you'll have it exactly as everyone does.
Most people who experience depression will struggle for a relatively short period and be able to come out of it. Though there are those who will continue to face depression off and on for many years. There can be ups and downs, but there are always things you can do to improve how you're feeling. You may always have depression, but that doesn't mean you have to always feel depressed.
Depression will always be in your life, but with the right medication and support, it can be managed and will become much easier to deal with!
No. Depression, in every recognized form by the DSM, is treatable in one way or another. Things like medication, cognitive therapy, and group counseling can all help to lift your feelings of sadness. Depression might not be something you can cure or get rid of, but it is definitely treatable.
I still suffer with depression even through all the experience and wisdom over the years but I get better at recognizing it and dealing with the issue instead of wallowing in self pity for an extended time.
Depression is like a ball and chain and really you only have the key to it, it may seem like it doesn't go away but it will you just need to work through it with others and by yourself.
No, there are things you can do to rid yourself from depression. Try speaking to a professional about your feelings to try and find out where your depression is stemming from. Being active helps with your general mood. Cardio was always my preference.
It is hard to know exactly how long you may have to deal with depression. Some people recover completely and find depressive thoughts to disappear over time. For some, it may take longer to cope with. It’s important to remember that no matter whether or not one deals with depression, there are always coping mechanisms and techniques you can use to minimize your distress and achieve your goals. In seeking help, you are just one step closer to learning how to live a life you are proud of, no matter whether or not you suffer from mental illness such as depression.
