Our expert says:
Dear Liesel - yes. Depression can cause so much misery and yet generally responds very well to proper treatment, so do see someone for a proper assessment, diagnosis, and a discussion of treatment options. A specialist psychiatrist would be best, but maybe first see a GP for the first assessment, to see whether referral is necessary at first.
