For this week’s episode of Hardcore Self Help, I’m talking about when you just can’t get rid of depression. You’ve had depression for a long time and you’re sick of it. You’re tired of feeling exhausted, upset, irritable, and hopeless. Maybe it’s even gotten to the point that you have seen a therapist and agreed to take psychiatric medication. Maybe you’ve even been hospitalized because of it. Despite your best efforts, though… the depression still lingers. It still holds you back and you just can’t seem to shake it the way that the books say you should be able to. I know it’s frustrating, but there is hope still. In this post, I will talk about some options when the normal interventions don’t seem to work and you just can’t get rid of depression.
