Depression, Anxiety & Emotional Stress: When Life Hurts Get Help!

What do you do when the day-to-day challenges of life become overwhelming and you lose the ability to meet life’s demands? Being overworked, loss of a job, relationship issues within the family, unexpected love loss, among other things, can cause overwhelming emotional stress. This stress can lead to anxiety or depression.

Many people attempt to push through it, afraid to seek help due to the fear of what others may think of them. Often, we hear “shake it off or work through it.” Ignore this type of advice. When life hurts get help. Seek professional help if you:

  • develop feelings of hopelessness
  • lose interest in activities that once made you happy
  • experience changes in sleep and appetite
  • feel there is no value to life
  • self-medicate with drugs and alcohol

Start with a good psychologist or psychiatrist. If your employer offers an Employee Assistance Program utilize the benefits. Self- care includes taking care of your mental health.
