Ok, thanks for the information.
It sounds like you may have some mild depression, which is easily treatable. Sometimes people work through mild depression themselves if their symptoms are not too strong and do not get worse. But if you are feeling that you need someone to talk to, a therapist could help. Short term Cognative Behavioral therapy (CBT) is an excellent solution to helping you feel better.
You could also be having a stress reaction. Sometimes, our lives and the stresses involved can cause mild depression and the strong need to get away for a while. The need for change is often a driving factor.
It may help you to know that many people suffer some type of depression in their lifetimes. It is very common. Some of the most common symptoms are:
- depressed mood
- feelings of emptiness
- decrease in pleasure or interest in activates that were once interesting.
- weight changes, either up or down
- decrease or increase in sleep
- feeling tired all the time
- feelings of worthlessness
If you chose to go to therapy, you can find a therapist through your doctor. Or, if you attend church, your pastor can help. You can also search on line at http://www.findatherapist.com/.
There are also some books that may help. One is called The Mindful Way through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness by ***** *****, John Teasdale, Zindel Segal, and Jon Kabat-Zinn. Another is The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Depression: A Step-by-step Program (Workbook) by William J. Knaus and Albert Ellis. You can find these on Amazon.com or your local library may have them available.
I hope this has helped you,
