Signs of Depression

Clinical Depression is "a psychiatric disorder characterized by the inability to concentrate, insomnia, loss of appetite, feelings of extreme sadness, guilt, helplessness and hopelessness, and thoughts of death." (look at Sources below)

A Sign(s) of Depression vary depending on the person, type of anxiety/condition, environment, history, and intensity of the problem. The most common depression symptoms are as follows:

* "Empty" Mood

* Feeling of Guilt or Helplessness

* Loss of Interest in Pleasurable Hobbies

* Fatigue

* Difficulty Concentrating or Making Decisions

* Insomnia

* Irregular Sleeping (hours)

* Thoughts of Death or Suicide

* Physical Symptoms

* Irritability

Although these are the main signs and symptons of depression, they are not the only ones. Take a moment to research the web if you still believe that you are depressed. A lot of depression usually sprouts from childhood, possibly of abuse, witnessing of violence, or even theft at a young age. Even though you may be depressed, know that there are solutions out there.

If most of these signs and symptoms occur for more than two weeks, it is recommended to take action. Consult a doctor or manage solutions like finding a hobbie such as sports or exercising. Although there are sedatives that ca be taken to rid your symptoms, exercising is the natural way to heal yourself.
