Understanding and Dealing with Depression

Understanding and Dealing with DepressionUnderstanding depression is often not easy. In fact, if your understanding of depression comes from other people’s descriptions of it, from the media, or from movies and TV, you may not see the full spectrum of symptoms and difficulty it can cause. The fact is, depression may look and feel different than you have been taught. Depression can include a myriad of symptoms including loss of interest in activities, mood swings, anxiety, apathy, changes in sleep, lack of concentration, weight gain or weight loss. If you are able to identify that you are suffering from depression, dealing can become a little easier. If you live in or near Blaine, Andover, or Ham Lake, Minnesota, Laurie Grengs is a wonderful choice to help you begin the process of overcoming the depression you have been experiencing.

Your circumstances are, of course, unique. And it is that exact uniqueness that Laurie celebrates and honors.
