Our expert says:
Depression is hard work and fatiguing, and complaints of fatigue / lack of energy are common in sufferers. Loss events, like retrenchment, often worsen symptoms. And insomnia is usually part of the picture, and of course adds to the tiredness. Also, depression is a powerful magnifier or amplifier of pain from whatever other cause. Obviously, you need assessment from at least a good GP, perhaps a psychiatrist, to confirm the dioagnosis and to prescribe effective treatment. This condition CAN be effectively treated,and you could be feeling a great deal better than this before long. Also ask about CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) a very effective form of brief counselling / therapy as well as medication
