Depression Counselling Services

Everything just seems so hard. Sometimes even getting out of bed or leaving the house seems impossible. You have cried and cried and maybe even found a stage where tears don’t even come – it is just numbness.

Everything feels so heavy and dark. Sometimes you have thoughts that you know you shouldn’t and they even scare you. It feels like no-one could possibly understand why it is so hard for you.

Why does everyone else seem to just be able to get up and leave the house? Even if you make it out of the house, it feels like it is always there just waiting to pull you back down. Any patches you have of feeling better, disappear quickly to be eaten up by the darkness.

You are really not sure you can keep feeling like this. It feels like there is no hope left.
