It’s very hard to escape depression when it dominates our minds. Because you see it everywhere and you can’t stop thinking about what’s wrong with you. Depression is supposed to interfere with your concentration and memory. This symptom applies mostly to external things, whereas when it comes to your internal world of depression, the memories of miseries are sharp. Every detail of the recent and past experience is as vivid as if it were occurring at this moment. Pessimism makes it easy to believe that nothing will work out and everything is pointless.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DEPRESSION AND FATIGUE

Depression and chronic fatigue syndrome are two conditions that can make someone feel extremely tired, even after a good night’s rest. It’s possible to have both conditions at the same time. It’s also easy to mistake feelings of fatigue for depression and vice-versa.

Depression occurs when a person feels sad, anxious, or hopeless for an extended period of time. People who are depressed often have sleep problems that involve sleeping too much or not sleeping at all.

A Vicious Cycle

Unfortunately, people who have chronic fatigue syndrome may become depressed, and those who have depression can develop chronic fatigue syndrome. The two conditions often feed off each other in a cycle that’s difficult to break.

Many people with chronic fatigue syndrome experience sleep disorders, such as insomnia or sleep apnea. These conditions often make fatigue worse, because they prevent people from getting a good night’s rest. When people feel tired, they may not have the motivation or energy to perform their daily activities. Even walking to the mailbox can feel like a marathon. The lack of desire to do anything can put them at risk of developing depression.

Fatigue may also fuel depression. People with depression often feel very tired and don’t want to partake in any activities.

I can’t do it and I will not try” is not the way to deal with the problem. You must try to live life positively. Depression fatigue may be linked to poor sleep, lack of activity, or commonly used antidepressant medications. Even after other depression, symptoms have responded to treatment, fatigue is likely to linger.

The first step to finding an effective way to fight depression fatigue is talking with your doctor. Your doctor will want to make sure your fatigue is not caused by another medical condition or the medication used to treat it. In addition to consulting your doctor, talk with your therapist about strategies you could make to reduce fatigue. These may include staying active, participating in fun activities with friends and loved ones, pacing yourself, and setting realistic goals for the day.

If you’re struggling with depression and fatigue, talk with your healthcare providers about medications or lifestyle changes that may help. Fatigue can make depression worse and may even increase your risk for depression relapse, so enlist your entire team to help you fight it off. Several therapeutic treatments can benefit people with chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, or both.
