What Are The Signs of Depression?

signs of depression

Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you are experiencing some of the signs of depression:

  • Is depression making you tired, apathetic, numb or just plan blah?
  • Are you hiding who you really are from others?
  • Does life sometimes seem like more trouble than it is worth?

You may have lost touch with the people and activities you used to care about.

If you often feel signs of depression like tearfulness or listlessness, you don't have to put up with it. There is more to life, although you may have a difficult time experiencing this right now.

When you stop doing the things you use to enjoy, isolating yourself and avoiding people, you are in a downward spiral that may be difficult to improve on your own.

It can be quite a trap: hopelessness and the feeling that nothing will ever get better is part of the problem. This feeling then can prevent you from taking the steps you need to bounce back.

signs of depression Depression statistics show that between 7 and 10% of the United States population is affected by one of the many types of depression. That’s up to 1 out of every 10 people you know, work with, go to school with, and drive on the streets with who suffers from the ravaging effects of depression. Unfortunately, less than one-third of people with depression make use of any kind of help.

Know that seeking help for depression is not a weakness. In fact, it is a strong and courageous step towards gaining back your life.

But real help is available. And you are not alone. Many people have walked through this and have come out the other side, happier and more satisfied!!

So no matter how mild or severe your depression, you do not have to tough it out all by yourself. Effective help can decrease the intensity and shorten the duration of episodes of depressed feelings.
