Do I have depression?
Everyone feels a little down or unhappy at times. That doesn't mean you have an immediate depression. Sometimes all this just goes against the grain, or you have a little less energy.
It's also not the case that if you regularly attempt suicide, it means that it confesses that you are depressed. Research has shown that 1 in 5 people suffer or have suffered from depression to a greater or lesser degree.
To know whether you suffer from depression, it is best to seek advice from an experienced online coach, psychologist, or therapist. If you suffer from depression, you can often be helped quickly without medication.
Depression is a disease, and we now know better and better how to cure it.
What are some symptoms of depression?

- Loss of energy despite enough sleep
- Feeling hopeless and or worthless
- Less interaction with friends and little desire to leave the house
- You eat less healthy than before and sport less
- Suicide thoughts
- You do not know how long you can keep up with your partner while you feel love
- Changes in your eating habits or weight
- You react stressed to situations where you would otherwise react normally
A depression, overstrained, or a burnout?
Living with depression can make you feel hopeless at times. The diagnosis of whether someone is overstrained has a burnout or has a depression can only be made by a professional coach or doctor. Not all depression coaches can make this diagnosis.
Often they can refer you to the right institutions that can give a diagnosis. However, this can be very expensive and a big step to take. TheONE is the first, most comfortable, and affordable step.
Is alcohol a depressant?
People have been using alcohol as a depressant for centuries. In most countries, it is a drink that is available everywhere and without a prescription. However, this solution to not feeling depressed is only temporary. You numb your feelings for a short period of time, or it calms you down, making you feel better for a while.
In the long run, the use of alcohol as a depressant can become an addiction and can cause a lot of damage to your brain, your environment and the functioning of society. Because of this, it is not a proper treatment for depression.
One of the most important hormones that determine our mood is serotonin. This lucky hormone has a significant influence on how we feel and even behave. Many antidepressant medications contain serotonin or allow you to produce more serotonin.
Alcohol significantly reduces serotonin levels within 45 minutes. So if you drink too much alcohol regularly, your body will hardly be able to make enough serotonin.
That is why it is strongly advised not to drink alcohol if you have depressive feelings, and it is wise to stop drinking alcohol entirely before taking medication against depression.

How to help if your spouse is depressed?
If your spouse is depressed, you want to help. You give tips and advice, but nothing seems to matter. Often this has nothing to do with your advice itself, but with the nature of the depression.
An online depression coach can explain why your well-intentioned advice does not work and gives you tips on what you can do. For instance:
- Be aware that your spouse is unlikely to be able to meet your expectations and needs
- Your spouse will forget things faster and you can support him or her by memorizing it yourself
- Give less advice because your partner is often unable to follow them up
- Stay in physical contact with each other and continue to talk to each other
- Show love and remember why you used to love each other
