How To Manage Feelings of Depression During and Post Lockdown? 

Posted by Azania Wednesday, July 29, 2020 7:14:00 AM

The word ‘depression’ is often used colloquially, so you might hear someone saying ‘I felt so depressed after that argument’ and often what they mean is that they felt sad or fed up. Depression in the clinical sense is more than feeling sad in response to something. Clinical depression is really a cluster of symptoms including feeling sad or feeling low or flat; as well as feeling physically and emotionally drained or lethargic, losing interest and motivation in activities or relationships including those that used to bring us an enormous sense of fulfillment and pleasure; and other symptoms. Additionally, these symptoms are typically experienced consistently over a period of weeks, months or years. Now, it’s important to note that even if you have clinical depression, you might not feel depressed every day, there might be some days or situations where you feel a little bit better; likewise, many people with depression hide it from the rest of the world for a very long time so on the surface may be the life of the party and may be able to joke and laugh with us, but are experiencing their own sense of internal suffering throughout.

COVID-19 certainly has created a state of chaos and disarray.
