Seven Clinical Depression Signs. We all get sad or down. However there is a difference when somebody is feeling stressed out or depressed because of job loss, relationship or illness. It CAN lead to clinical depression. It is important to recognize or catch these signs if at all possible! So I’ve included a list of some of the signs of clinical depression below.
Seven Clinical Depression Signs- Symptoms
1. Loss of appetite or overeating 2. Insomnia, waking up 3. Obsessive and intrusive thoughts and worrying 4. Feelings of hopelessness or helplessness 5. Not participating at social activities that one liked before 6. Suicidal thoughts/ideations 7. Substance abuse or excessive shopping/gambling etc.
Symptoms need to last minimum 2 weeks to be able to properly diagnose.

Today I wanted to share with you something that I’ve been struggling with all my life because fortunately I had a breakthrough after talking to a wise friend.
For years I have worked with therapists, healers, and coaches, to release trauma from the past and my “victim” role. Now a wise friend told me how to get more into depth and start taking full responsibility for my feelings, thoughts, behaviors, actions. As well as my choices who I let into my inner space.
I’m excited to be able to finally meet my real, “Authentic Self”! One that is based in pure love, compassion, joy, and peace. This is as opposed to relying on projections and roles from my “Conditioned Self” (as described by my mentor Shelley Riutta). That persona is based on guilt, anger, fear and other negative emotions and expectations and dependence on other people.
That in combination with the Course in Miracles and my spiritual family founded by Liz Newman LAC will help me get there. Doing my baby steps and catching myself as often as I can when I am in my Conditioned Self.
Seven Clinical Depression Signs- Authentic self
I’m already a gifted healer and holistic psychotherapist. I also believe very strongly that, especially for people in healing and medical field, that it is so important to continue healing ourselves. In this way I will be able to help my clients in an even more profound and more AUTHENTIC way. There is no shame! We are all dealing with universal human needs and barriers on our way to getting to know our real Authentic Selves.
Now you might say, “This is all well & good but these things actually happened to me”. We tend to see everything based on our past experiences with other people, events and circumstances. If we didn’t have an emotional attachment to a person or event that happened in our past, we wouldn’t have such a strong emotional reactions. Those reactions act as a “trigger” to a current situation.
Seven Clinical Depression Signs- Being fully healed
This means that we have not fully healed the situation and our emotional response to it. This is the basis of my work whether I work with couples or individuals. One of my Imago mentors (to read about Imago check my website under the tab “Holistic Psychotherapy). If we didn’t have attachment to the past we would not feel pain, anger, rejection or whatever we are feeling.
Lets say for example a woman was abused in her childhood or in past romantic relationships. If she hasn’t healed the past event and emotional attachment to it she will unconsciously repeat the same scenario. She will do this in not just intimate relationships but also platonic relationships as well. So whether business or personal it will not matter. More importantly, she will continue carrying this pattern onto her children or any future relationships.
If she is in a relationship with a man, who had similar patterns of being a “victim” of the situation, they will keep “triggering” each other’s wounds until they both take full responsibility for their thoughts, beliefs, actions, and choices. Remember, no matter what, you always have a choice.
Seven Clinical Depression Signs- Leaving the relationship
Even women or men that are abused in a relationships still have a choice. Albeit I understand it may appear not to be an easy one right now perhaps. But they CAN leave the relationship. Many times a professional is needed to help them build their self-esteem and self-love back up to be able to make that step. Finances might get in the way. We know too most people prefer to remain in the comfort zone instead of being vulnerable and looking deeply into themselves.
One of my favorite teachers Marianne Williamson says it well! This would make great reading for you possibly!
