Are you finding it difficult to reach out for help? Perhaps your depression is making you feel withdrawn and unable to cope with talking to a doctor. You might be feeling embarrassed, or that your problem is not important enough to 'bother' a doctor. Perhaps you imagine that depression is something you should be able to handle and fix yourself. You might even think that you are not suffering from a real illness. If so, you are not alone. Many people don't seek help for depression. However, depression is a serious illness and you deserve help.
Not convinced? Well just consider this. Panels of experts have found that moderate depression disrupts a person's life as much as multiple sclerosis, severe asthma or deafness. Imagine not seeking help for multiple sclerosis or severe asthma because you didn't want to bother the doctor!
