Have you noticed how your mood starts to shift downward into depression as the fall and winter approach? The more cold, dark, and gray the days become, the more you can feel a heaviness set in over your thoughts or in your body. At Evanston Counseling, we get that! If you see your moods shifting at this time, you may want to look into therapy for Seasonal Affective Disorder.
You wish you would wake up one morning, and it would be gone. The constant ache, the sharp jabs…the reminder that your life is not quite what it could be or once was. A recent study shows that chronic pain impacts the lives of over 50 million Americans. If this is your life, you are well acquainted with the extra medical costs, limits to your social life, and lost workdays associated with your chronic pain. At Evanston Counseling, we feel for you and our clients who suffer daily. We want you to know there are ways to reclaim more of the juice of life and to feel the struggle less.
Scientists have established that individuals suffering from depression may also suffer from gastrointestinal distress such as low gut motility and constipation, as seen in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
