Do any of these statements sound familiar?
- 'I can't be bothered; I haven't got the energy.’
- 'I feel too low to do anything.’
- 'I don't see friends anymore.’
Any of these comments could be indicators of depression. If you are avoiding people, doing less, or aren’t going out as much anymore, you could be experiencing depression. While a continuous low mood is a chief symptom, others include:
- Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
- Fatigue and decreased energy
- Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
- Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
- Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
- Irritability, restlessness
- Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
- Overeating or appetite loss
- Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not get better even with treatment
- Persistent sad, anxious, or ‘empty’ feelings
- Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
Most people know about the emotional symptoms of depression. But you may not know that depression can cause physical symptoms, too. In fact, many people with depression feel actual physical pain.
