Cómo ayudar a una persona con depresión

Depresion

La depresión puede convertir a un amigo o familiar feliz y dinámico en una persona completamente diferente. Es muy difícil ver a un ser querido luchando contra la depresión, y por supuesto que queremos ayudar, pero la depresión no es sólo un mal día, sino algo constante durante meses o años. Nuestro ser querido sencillamente no tiene la capacidad de sentirse feliz. La depresión es mucho más grave que las emociones que van y vienen en respuesta a los acontecimientos de la vida, la depresión lleva una sensación de hundimiento que impide continuar la vida diaria.

La depresión no es lo mismo para todos. Hay muchos síntomas y la experiencia de una persona puede ser completamente diferente de otra. Sin embargo, si crees que alguien que conoces tiene una tristeza demasiado profunda y resistente, busca los siguientes síntomas:

-Falta de energía

– Inquietud y nerviosismo

– Trastornos del sueño

– Pérdida de apetito

-Autodestrucción

Como puedes imaginar, también hay muchos signos emocionales de depresión, algunos de los cuales pueden parecer obvios, mientras que otros son más difíciles de identificar.

– Me siento triste y deprimido.

– Pérdida de interés por prácticamente todo.

– Aumento de la ansiedad

– Baja confianza en sí mismo y baja autoestima

– Sensación de desesperación.

Cuando sabes que alguien que amas está sufriendo de depresión, es posible que te sientas extremadamente indefenso. Crees que si pudieras decir lo correcto o hacer algo especial, podrías ayudarlos a mejorar. Sin embargo, no sabes qué decir o hacer. Intentas un enfoque suave, intentas un enfoque firme. Les das espacio, tratas de que se abran, sugieres cosas que crees que les pueden ayudar, les compras regalos, dices cosas alentadoras, te frustras, peleas. Sin embargo, nada de lo que haces parece cambiar nada.

Para alguien que vive con depresión, el apoyo de amigos y familiares puede marcar la diferencia, pero es difícil encontrar maneras de ayudar. Afortunadamente, hay cosas que podemos hacer para ayudar a nuestros seres queridos que sufren de depresión, pero lo principal es:

ESTAR AHÍ PARA ÉL O ELLA

SER CONSISTENTE

SER SIEMPRE BONDADOSO CON LA PERSONA, NO HACER NI DECIR NADA HIRIENTE

Una de las cosas más importantes que puedes hacer para ayudar a un amigo o ser querido con depresión es tu amor incondicional y apoyo. Esto significa ser comprensivo, paciente y alentador, lo cual no siempre debido a los desafíos que conlleva la depresión.

Normalmente se piensa que si uno es ponsitivo y se convierte en su animador personal, un día la otra persona se levantará y dirá: «¡Sí! La vida es hermosa, soy feliz y voy a hacer feliz a la gente que me rodea! «Pero ese no será el caso. Las infinitas muestras de positividad que le ofrezcamos no son útiles, hacen más daño que bien. Para ellos es frustrante recibir esos comentarios. Les recuerda que no están llenos de alegría. Sé que se ven tristes y a veces se sienten increíblemente deprimidos, pero alentarlos no ayuda. Tienen una ausencia total de emoción y no puedes arreglar algo que no existe.

¿Qué debemos hacer entonces? Pues simplemente estar ahí. Recuérdale que esto es sólo temporal. No les digas que siga intentándolo, pero recuérdale que hay una luz afuera. Escucha y valida sus sentimientos sin tratar de manipular o consolar a la persona. No ofrezcas opiniones ni consejos.

Puede ser frustrante ver a un amigo deprimido o familiar luchando contra la depresión, especialmente si el progreso es lento o estancado. La paciencia es importante. Incluso con el mejor tratamiento, la recuperación de la depresión no ocurre de la noche a la mañana.

Si bien no puedes controlar la recuperación de otra persona, puedes comenzar a animar a la persona deprimida a buscar ayuda. Puede ser difícil conseguir que una persona deprimida reciba tratamiento, pero según un estudio reciente publicado en el International Journal of Psychiatry, las personas deprimidas que buscan tratamiento pueden llevar vidas más saludables y equilibradas. Ten en cuenta que la depresión afecta a la energía y a la motivación, por lo que incluso ir a una cita o ver a un médico puede parecer intimidante. Ayuda a tu ser querido a explorar las opciones de tratamiento y seguir el tratamiento prescrito.

Otras recomendaciones:

  • Anímale a seguir pautas saludables de vida como es comer saludable y hacer deporte, ayudará muchísimo a su química cerebral y a que se sienta bien.
  • Sólo escúchale cuando hable de su malestar. Intenta utilizar frases como éstas:
    • No estás solo en esta lucha.
    • Estoy aquí para ti.
    • Me preocupo por ti.
    • Dime cómo puedo ayudarte.
    • Evita utilizar frases como éstas: Sé como te sientes, intenta ver lo positivo, todo el mundo se siente mal a veces o sal del hoyo donde estás metido.
  • Cuídate a ti mismo. Pasar una cantidad importante de tiempo con alguien que sufre depresión clínica puede ser agotador en ocasiones. Si no te tomas tiempo para cuidarte a ti mismo y disfrutar de tu propia vida, te expones a un mayor riesgo de estrés y bajo estado de ánimo.

  1. Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website psicologosbarcelona.info…

    I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

    Like yours, many of them have great content.

    But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

    I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

    Here’s a solution for you…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE http://talkwithwebtraffic.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

    Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

    CLICK HERE http://talkwithwebtraffic.com to discover what Talk With Web Visitor can do for your business.

    You could be converting up to 100X more eyeballs into leads today!

  2. Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found psicologosbarcelona.info after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

    CLICK HERE http://jumboleadmagnet.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.

    Strike when the iron’s hot!

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

  3. Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – psicologosbarcelona.info – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across psicologosbarcelona.info, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Wouldn’t that be cool?

  5. Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with psicologosbarcelona.info definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

  6. Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    – Someone does a search and winds up at psicologosbarcelona.info.

    – They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    – And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    – Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    – There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.
