how do you know if your depressed :S
Hey Confused! Lost you when my site got logged out and had to create a new one. You had me under your friends as Twilightluvinmom. Tried to contact you through FM but with my new screen name I'm not a friend and couldn't email u.
Most common symptoms are: lack of interest in things that you enjoyed in the past, insomnia OR wanting to sleep all of the time, lack of appetite OR eating more (lack of appetite is most common), feelings of hopelessness or helplessness, sudden mood swings, bouts of uncontrollable crying, lethargy (just an overwhelming feeling of BLAH!! No real desire to do anything that isn"t absolutely necessary or mandatory), isolating yourself from family and friends, thoughts of self-harm and possibly thinking out a plan.
If you feel you may be depressed and have had these symptoms for greater than 6 weeks then you should contact your physician and let them know what's going on and they can devise a treatment plan that is right for you
If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!
Good luck!! :D
If your constantly unhappy in life. If something good at happens but you refuse to get happiness from it. If you don't wan to socialise and would rather sit and mope on your own. Depression can also be genetic so check with your family if your worried.
Other symptoms include feeling lethargic(tired constantly), and drinking more than usual. If you feel you have depression you need to speak out to someone whom you trust.
Here's a very trust-worthy website. It provides the most common symtoms. Hope this helps!
Sleeping a lot, loss of appetite, loss of interest in everything, general frustration with everyhting
