The feeling of depression is much more powerful and unpleasant than the short episodes of unhappiness that we all experience from time to time.
- Constantly unhappy
- Losing interest in life
- Finding it difficult to make decisions
- Feeling constantly tired
- Feeling restless or agitated
- Weight changes
- Sleep problems
- Loss of interest in sex
- Low self-confidence
- Feeling useless, inadequate or hopeless
- Anger management problems
Many do not realize they suffer depression, as symptoms may come on gradually. They may struggle on or blame themselves; calling themselves lazy or stupid.
Some try to cope with feelings of depression with alcohol, drugs or spending long hours in front of a TV or computer screen. This can cause symptoms such as stress, anxiety, exhaustion, sleeplessness, or deeper depression.
