Determining whether you are suffering from run-of-the-mill, motherhood-induced lowness, or a major depressive episode can be surprisingly difficult to differentiate.
Once again, I’m working with a few amazing bloggers to help people better understand depression.
If you would be willing to take this short survey (less than 10 minutes), you will be entered for a chance to win 1 of 10 $100 VISA gift cards.
No personal information will be kept, sold, or stored in the survey completion process – it is COMPLETELY anonymous so feel free to be honest. They have you send a separate email to confirm your entry so they aren’t connected to your answers.
Thanks for taking the time to help and good luck!
If you took the first survey, thank you! Feel free to take the second survey above because it’s slightly different from the first one (plus I want you to win a gift card ;))
The results were very interesting and shed some light on how people perceive depression and how to treat it. One of the stats that stood out to me is how the symptoms of depression can vary. Everything from feelings of sadness to difficulty sleeping to gastrointestinal problems to physical aches and pains.
Here are some of the Wave One Survey results:
What do you think? Did those stats surprise you?
