Being human means experiencing a wide array of emotions. Sadness is just one of many feelings. This means that we ALL feel sad at times and it a very normal and appropriate response to unsettling events, losses, life transitions, and disappointments, no matter how big or small. It is important to allow yourself to feel sad and to try and express your sadness to someone close to you. Keeping your sad feelings to yourself can actually make you feel worse. Crying is not a weakness, but an expression of your inner self. We can learn a lot about ourselves if we listen to our feelings.
Once you allow yourself to experience and express your sadness, your sad feelings will likely resolve themselves with some time. However, if you find yourself experiencing persistent feelings of sadness and/or difficulty engaging in regular functions or activities, it may be helpful to make an appointment.
Depression is a much deeper level of sadness that can be very overwhelming and interferes with a person’s level of functioning. Research suggests that one out of six adults in North America suffer from Depression. There are also tremendous variations in the way that people experience Depression. There are also those many people who are depressed, yet are not aware that they do not have to live their lives feeling this way. For some people, depression can be experienced as irritability. Depression and Anxiety often go hand in hand. You may find yourself worrying or feeling distressed more often than not. Here are some of the signs that you may be experiencing clinical depression:

Thank you for the consultation and wonderful service. We were very anxious about getting our daughter tested for gifted placement.
Dr. Cherwony, you made our experience an easy and valuable one. As promised, you spent extensive time
with us helping to determine the best school placement for our daughter.
The feedback we were given was worth every penny!
Thanks again. - Marie D
Dr. Cherwony, you have been an angel in my life. When I first met you at my pre-surgical bariatric evaluation, you told me that food was my addiction and to think about what I was trying to hide from. Your words rang true for me after my surgery and then I realized I needed to see you.
I want to thank you deeply for all your compassion and support during my journey to health and wellness. I can't believe how
much you have taught me. - Lindsay C
My only regret was that I waited 2 months before starting to see Dr. Cherwony. I struggled with depression and loads of guilt following the birth of my first child. It was not how I had expected it to be. It was the most devastating time for me. Thank you so much Dr. C for helping me to understand and deal with my PPD and insomnia, and for helping my family to deal better with myself. - SR
