10 Depression Signs You Need To Be Aware Of

Worse than just being "sad".


The majority of us believe that the signs of depression can be easily detected.
The truth is that it can be easily spotted, as some of the symptoms are easily missed.
Below you can see ten signs that if ring a bell, it might be a good idea to arrange a visit to your psychologist.


1. Sleepless nights


Yes, it's true; we all suffer from sleeping difficulties from time to time, our hectic way of life, stress, and malnutrition can cause sleeping disorders. However, insomnia or waking up in the middle of the night or the early morning hours for quite a long period of time might be a red flag for depression.


On the other hand, constantly feeling tired and sleeping long hours are also symptoms of depression.


2. Appetite and weight changes


The fluctuation of appetite and weight is quite common among people that suffer from depression.


The experience differs, while some patients are not interested in food anymore and suffer from weight loss. Others seek solace in the serotonin, stimulating junk food, which results in gain weight.


3. Stressful Decisions


If you find yourself unable to focus and make the most straightforward decisions if you can't trust yourself on choosing the right thing to do because you are full of self-loathing, all these can be signs of depression.


4. Anxiety


Being anxious about past problems, trying to analyze every past mistake


5. Body pains


The body and mind are connected. That's why when you suffer from depression, and you find yourself not being able to get up from the bed, your whole body aches, even the simplest everyday tasks seem hard to do.


6. Unable to control emotions


Imagine a rollercoaster, then put feelings. One minute you're joyful and energetic the next one you're crying, everyone annoys you. And then after every outburst, the guilt comes in. Relax, you're not turning into an intolerable angry person, you need help to sort things out.


7. Sex is out of the picture


You're numb, and you are unable to feel affection, your libido is absent for good


8. Alcohol becomes your next best friend


It helps you relax, and it enables you to laugh. It enables you to forget your misery for a while. Alcohol might seem like a solution to your problems, but after a few drinks, your depression strikes in harder.


9. Your friends don't comfort you anymore


Usually, when we are in a lousy mood hanging out with our friends makes us feel better. That's not the case with depressed people. Hanging out with your friends can be frustrating and stressful. You find yourself nervous before meeting with your friends, and when you're with them, you feel lonelier than ever.


10. No future


Making plans? Anticipating for the future? Dreaming? All of these are gone. When you're depressed, you are not predicting the future, and everything seems blurred, frustrating. You feel hopeless and helpless; nothing will ever get better, so there is no point trying at all.


The signs mentioned above don't necessarily mean that you are suffering from depression. You can't diagnose yourself.


But, if you used to be energetic, joyful, ambitious, and lately, you feel the exact opposite, relating to the symptoms as mentioned above, maybe it's a good time to book an appointment with a psychologist.


Prevention is always better than cure.
