But that's not the end of the problem. It actually gets worse!
Because you may not have the time and do not know where and how to get all this information to be depression-free, even though you may be desperate for a solution.
As a result, you might give up and never really learn how to truly break free from depression!
Which means you'll continue to lose years of your life, happiness and dreams to depression.
And, worst of all, most people going through depression can't get past the idea that it cannot be overcome without being dependent on antidepressants and external help forever, which can all be very expensive.
Which means being stuck in a cycle of self-loathing, low-energy, isolation, having to pretend everything is ok, but meanwhile feeling like the world is on your shoulders.
Loss of important relationships, opportunities and earnings are a very real consequence of depression.
Struggling with thoughts of self-harm and suicide is also a very real struggle for most and the shame and sadness makes it very hard to get help.
Your quality of life can dwindle very fast and it can be hard to get out of that cycle.
