Summer is here! Vacations are on the horizon and your kids are out of school. Barbeques, time by the beach or the lake, and ballgames are all in your future. Most of your coworkers, family, and friends may seem more positive and energetic. Does your mood match the bright summer days?
Regardless of the season, depression can put a dark, gloomy cloud over how you see the world. In fact, summer can be a particularly difficult time of year for those with depression. Clinical depression can impair your ability to sleep, eat, work, and get along with others. It can damage self-esteem, self-confidence, and your ability to accomplish everyday tasks.
