Are you struggling with loneliness, exhaustion, even depression but no one knows it but you? Do you have trouble admitting vulnerability? Do you keep a facade of having it all together, when you realize at some level there’s something wrong? If so, this podcast is for you. Perfectly Hidden Depression (PHD) isn’t a diagnosis, but it is an identification of a new and surprising way depression can look. People with PHD have created a wonderful-looking life. They’re successful, well-liked. They don’t “look” depressed. Yet they use specific strategies to hide past trauma or current pain. The good news is that you don’t have to hide for the rest of your life. And this podcast may be the first step in realizing and accepting who you really are.
A special head-up to any therapists might be listening! We can all miss this presentation of depression. It so important for us to understand this dynamic.
Part Two will be coming soon! SUBSCRIBE here on I Tunes!
