How Depression Can Creep Up On You!

We recently had our time with “This year’s cold/flu/crud” that’s been going around since before Christmas. Just about everybody has had some form of the epidemic since the flu shot hasn’t been very effective.

Some of the main symptoms have been depression and lack of energy! When you have a fever and can’t eat properly you don’t sleep well either! Your whole immune system takes a toll on you.

Of course you don’t feel good, but you also get depressed when you don’t see signs of feeling better after a week or so……………….Note: when we get close to death our body prepares us for the transition by taking the focus on everyday living to somewhere beyond.  Most of the time normally healthy people can hang on and just  wait until they feel better.  BUT sometimes other people just slip deeper into depression. 

At these times, we need to watch our loved ones and pick up on the signs of extended bouts of depression and seek and/or recommend professional help. Medications can help prevent enduring problems.

The point is that depressions associated with sickness should go away as soon as the illness starts getting better. If a positive outlook doesn’t return soon. Concern is appropriate! PAY ATTENTION!!
