Overcome intense feelings. We may lose pleasure in activities that were once pleasurable. We may experience
uncontrollable tearfulness, feelings of hopelessness, or have thoughts of death or suicide. We may feel
stuck, unable to move in any direction in our lives.Sadness and depression are often used interchangeably; however, depression goes beyond the momentary feelings of sadness or feeling down that many of us experience. Depression can significantly
impact how we think, feel, behave, and function in our day-to- day lives. We may become critical of
ourselves and think we are not “good enough.” We may struggle to get out of bed or struggle to
complete daily tasks.
How We Can Help
Simply Bee will help you find new ways to re-engage in your life. We will work together to create a safe
space to explore your thoughts and feelings while modifying them to promote mental health. We can
focus on how to create a structured, yet flexible, schedule that encourages completion of necessary
tasks and participation in pleasurable activities while maintaining consistency with sleep, eating, and
physical activity. These strategies will help you reclaim your life.
Experience relief. We may experience intrusive or worrisome thoughts, feel overwhelmed, feel irritable, experience
disrupted sleep, avoid people/places/experiences that cause fear or anxiety, and experience physical
sensations such as muscle tension, increased heart rate, and shortness of breath. These experiences
may even lead to panic attacks. We can become distracted both mentally and physically by our fears or
anxieties.Fear can be a helpful emotion in response to threat, as anxiety can be a helpful emotion in response to
stress. Both emotions can encourage us to pay attention, to prepare, and to respond. For example, fear
from a rabid dog running towards us may cause us to run and anxiety in anticipation of a job interview
may cause us to role-play interview questions. Anxiety as a disorder, however, differs from these helpful
feelings of fear and anxiety and instead involves excessive fear and anxiety that interfere with our lives.
