symptoms of depression

When you’re depressed…

  • You feel sad or cry a lot, and it doesn’t go away
  • You feel guilty for no real reason; you feel like you’re no good; you’ve lost your confidence
  • Life seems meaningless or like nothing good is ever going to happen again
  • You have a negative attitude a lot of the time, or it seems like you have no feelings

  • You don’t feel like doing a lot of things you used to like – like music, sports, being with your friends, going out – and you wanted to be left alone for most of the time
  • It’s hard to make up your mind
  • You forget lots of things and it’s hard for you to concentrate
  • You feel irritated often
  • Little things make you lose your temper; you overact
  • Your sleep pattern changes; you start sleeping a lot more or you have trouble falling asleep at night. Or you wake up really early most mornings and can’t get back to sleep
  • Your eating habits change; you’ve lost appetite or you eat a lot more
  • You feel restless and tired most of the time
  • You think about death, or feel like you’re dying, or have thought of committing suicide
