Depression (also known as major depressive disorder, or MDD) is a serious, recurrent condition that can be challenging to manage.
Everyone responds differently to medicine. So finding the most helpful medicine and dose for you may take a few tries. Here are the ways some people describe being stuck in their lows:
“It's that ‘I know I’ve been here before’ moment. I realize my depression is coming back when I notice I'm hiding out from the world.” —Julie, diagnosis of major depressive disorder
“I know this feeling. It’s like 'here we go again.’ No one knows my depression as well as me... that sense that I’m not participating in life.”—Mike, diagnosis of major depressive disorder
Do either of these sound familiar to you? If so, it may be time to talk to your doctor about your current treatment.
