Signs of Depression

Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad but these feelings are short-lived and pass within a few days.  When you have depression, it will normally last longer than a few days and interfere with daily life. Grief, losing a job, major illness, chronic stress or major life issues such as divorce (to name a few) can cause depression.  Many people with a depression never seek treatment. But the majority who do, even those with the most severe depression, can get better with proper treatment.  

Signs and symptoms of depression: 

  • Sad or irritable mood
  • Overeating or loss of appetite
  • Diminished interest in or enjoyment of activities
  • Lack of energy
  • Problems concentrating
  • Suicidal thoughts or gestures
  • Social withdrawal
  • Sleeplessness or hypersomnia
  • Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness or guilt
  • Frequent crying episodes

If you believe you (or someone you know) is experiencing depression the most important thing you can do is seek.  A family physician or licensed therapist will be able assess if you have depression and provide available treatment recommendations.  For questions or to schedule an appointment with Christina Romero, click here.
