“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
We use the word ‘depressed’ very lightly. ‘I didn’t get a good score in my tests, I’m depressed’. ‘My dress doesn’t fit me, I’m depressed’. But depression is so much more than just that. It does not mean occasional sadness, temporary mood swings, being upset, or loneliness. Read on for the signs of depression you should be looking out for. Who knows, you may help a friend or a family member. Or even yourself.
Keep in mind, though, that clinical depression and its symptoms can often differ from one person to another. Just because you identify, or identified, with one or more of these symptoms today or at some point in the past, does not necessarily mean that you are depressed. Depression consumes you, and doesn’t allow you to function normally, with little or no relief. The symptoms of depressions are:
If any of these symptoms last for more than two weeks, contact your doctor. Depression patients usually have persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, or of emptiness. They may often cry for no reason. A sense of impending doom is also not uncommon.
Mostly, depression symptoms in men lean towards anger, irritability, tiredness, and loss of interest in activities. In women, the symptoms may present themselves as changes in appetite and sleep patterns, feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and frustration. In young people and teens, these symptoms may show themselves as anger and irritability issues. Changes in appetite, sleep patterns, and unexplained aches and pains could also be tell-tale signs.
Depression is not something that you should take lightly or be ashamed of. Just like other diseases, this is also a medical condition and should be treated. If you are depressed, talk to a doctor. If that is not an option, talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else that you feel comfortable with, who can provide some guidance.
