How Do You Know If You Have Depression?

There is a very large difference when it comes to simply feeling depressed and having depression. It is normal to feel down at different times over the course of your life. However, if you find yourself starting to feel a constant sense of hopelessness, you might have depression.

Below we are going to let you know some of the most common warning signs and symptoms of depression.

Common Signs Of Depression

Feeling Hopeless Everyday: If you find yourself feeling like nothing will ever get better, you might be experiencing depression.

Loss Of Interest In Daily Activities: Have you found yourself suddenly not interested in your favorite hobbies and activities? Studies have shown that those with depression may not want to be social or partake in things that once brought them joy.

Frequent Irritability: While this symptom can be brought about by multiple things, it is also a warning sign of depression. If you find yourself feeling angered more easily, or wanting to lash out at loved ones, you could be suffering from depression.

Trouble Focusing: One of the other usual symptoms is loss of focus. This is when you find yourself unable to focus on conversations, daily tasks, and other activities.

Weight Gain Or Loss: Everyone will react to depression in their own unique ways. Some may find themselves wanting to binge on their favorite foods, while others are sickened at the thought of eating.

Bodily Pain: Not everyone will experience this physical symptom, but frequent aches and pains can make depression that much harder to deal with.

Change In Sleeping Patterns: Some may find themselves wanting to sleep through the day while others suddenly become insomniacs. 

These are just a few of the regular warning signs that could point to depression. If you think that you or someone you love is suffering from this disorder, it is important to seek help.
