How do i know if i'm depressed or just going through hormonal changes or something? It seems that i go through these phases where i dont want to do anything or talk to anyone because everything is upsetting me. Also, i'm kind of pessimistic most of the time and optimistic others.. so this kind of confuses me because i'm not sure what to think of my emotions :p
Hormonal changes can cause actual depression. Speak to your doctor rto get a proper diagnoses and for treatment considerations. Diagnosing or attempting to treat yourself with medication could make things worse.
The only way to know for sure is to get properly diagnosed by a professional. Anything otherwise, would be just guessing.
Thanks! Hopefully it is just hormonal changes. I'll try talking to my doctor about it though.
