These days we seem to live with continuous anxiety, and many of us think it’s the “new normal.” Are you constantly down? In the course of a week, how many days are good days vs not so good? If you are sad or depressed most days, maybe you should find out why and get some help. When is it time to call Foresight?

Prolonged Sadness

Someone who wakes up every morning feeling sad or depressed might need some professional help. Is sadness preventing you from normal activities or socializing? Is it causing you to miss work or school? Is it affecting your relationships or caring for your children? If you know someone like this, don’t be reticent. Suggest they get help. If it’s you, follow your own advice.
