The symptoms of depression


depressive disorder is different from just any sadness that comes from disappointment or sorrow. The word disorder means an abnormal physical or mental condition. Patients suffering from depressive disorder or depression are in a longer state of sadness than normal to the point that it disrupts normal daily activities because of symptoms like insomnia, inability to focus,
lack of appetite and a complete loss of interest. Everything just seems terrible. Depression can come from many different causes like genetics and chemical imbalances in the brain but it’s most often triggered by a traumatic event like the loss of a loved one or personal failure. just because someone is suffering from depression it doesn’t mean that they are weak give up easily or are unwilling to tackle a problem, but due to the illness that has occurred to their mental state it means that they are not ready to face the issue it’s like being in a pitch dark room and no matter where they turn they just can’t see the exit. But with proper help and support of peers it’s like there’s a helping hand turning on the light which guides them to solving their problem on their own and returning to their regular lives. Many of you are probably wondering if perhaps you fall into this category too. Let’s see if within the last two weeks you have experienced any of the following symptoms. 1. Feelings of discouragement, sadness or despair 2. Complete loss of interest in activities or hobbies 3. Loss of appetite or extreme overeating. 4. Insomnia or excessive sleeping 5. Feelings of anxiousness, restlessness or complete lack of motivation 6. Fatigue or easily decreased energy. 7. Feelings of worthlessness and disappointment in oneself. 8. Lack of concentration, focus, memory retention and inability to make decisions. 9. Suicidal thoughts. If you have experienced more than five of these symptoms almost every day within the past two weeks it could mean that you are at risk of having depressive disorder. But before diagnosing yourself with depression you should consult a psychiatrist who can offer you their professional opinion after conducting a detailed analysis. Seeing a psychiatrist or psychologist isn’t an unusual or something to be ashamed of. It’s an incorrect assumption that those who seek mental health professionals are insane. In reality those that are suffering from stress or complex issues with no one to confide in can also consult a psychiatrist or psychologist. Mental disorders are exactly like physical disorders that require specific consultation. It’s the same as if your teeth hurt that you see a dentist or your knee hurts that you see an orthopedist.

  1. 1 i dont feel discouragement 2 i have loss interest in activities because im not interested 3 I always eat a lot and 4 i always excessively sleep all the time thats my everyday life.

  2. Im watching this and im tearing up i want to see a therapist but it will be embarrassing if she says I just wang attention

  3. I know somethings that some people will not understand and if I do some people will think I’m crazy or say “that’s fake she’s lying” or “you can’t do that” and it’s not typical like abuse but I have suffered through that and if you want to know it’s fine and I will message you privately but you just know that I am not offending anyone saying that they don’t know what I’ve been through but rather that they probably haven’t seen what I’ve seen and if you think so well let’s say I have almost been raped by my own cousin when I was 5 but luckily I knew what to do

  4. I have all the symptoms and have had depression for about 2 or 3 months but my parents probably won't believe me I put them to the test but they failed

  5. I just came here to give some info.
    A lot of people think that depression is sadness, it's not. You can be depressed af without being sad at all.
    That'll be all

  6. 2 weeks? 5 years… Kids, don't neglect your mental health. Depression won'tgo away by itself,you must treat it and know its manifestations, so that when you have a relapse, you will notice it early and treat it.

  7. I experienced all syptoms i already knew i had depression since i was in grade 2 and no one knows besides me and i dont want anyone to know. I thought about telling my freinds but they joke around about me being depressed and an emo i just laugh it off even if it hurts ALOT but what am i to say.

  8. Well let's see,

    I lost my grandfather, one of the closest people to me
    I left my best friend without realizing it
    I had to put my cat down (been alive before I was born)
    And in a lonely, depressed, person.

    Hmm

  9. I have 6 of these symptoms, and I swear I’m not saying this for attention. I’m trying my hardest, even my doctor noticed and recommended a social worker but my parents don’t care.

  10. Some random edgy kid watching this: OMG I HAVE ONE SYNDROM I NEED PROFESSIONAL CARE BCS I HAVE DEPRESSION LEVEL 19299191

    No really kids, depression isn't a joke. Don't joke around with it. Some of you don't even know what depression is, being edgy won't make you loved.

  11. I’m depressed with myself for years I haven’t felt like I’m really needed in life and that life doesn’t need me just like in school and in my family I just feel like I’m nothing and I won’t be nothing and it’s like I’m in a dark place that I can’t escape from no matter how hard I try.

  12. its been a few months, it started around september 2018 and i thought itd go, august 2019 and counting. its so hard and im so clueless on what to do. its not easy at all and im so so so scared, family matters are the worst. my chest hurts everytime because of it and i just dont know what to do because idk if i should let my dad know since its so hard since hes in the US and im here in asia, im scared ill let him down and let the ppl who took care of me but at the same time hurt me hurt me more. maybe im too sensitive? or maybe its because i was exposed with such vulgar and bad things at the age of 6-7 like shoutings, suicidal attempts, broken family and etc…

  13. "Let's see if you've had this symptoms within the past 2 weeks."

    Is it bad that I have had these symptons for years? I mean, I am fully aware of my depression but having it for years especially when you get it at a very young age til you grow up… It sucks. A lot. It's been 5 years and I am still here.

  14. I've told my parents, and they helped me out through this state. But every single day, I just think of ending my life. I just don't want to be here. I just want to go away.

  15. im so tired. bullys in school then when u late DETANTION .like i come to home and mom start yelling at me . my sis always hit me then u cant eat u cant sleep just crying all the day its make it more bad .
    *fake smiles all the day ,cutting ur self Im just A mistake.

  16. i may have these symptoms but not as strong. mine is caused from fake friends… they ignore me. they make me feel worthless. once i think i did something good, they just say 'oh good…'

    sometimes, i want to die because of a death threat. they told me to jump in a river and die. now i want to do that. and guess who had told me that? someone who i thought was my best friend. but i will stay strong, because i know deep inside im worth it.

  17. Except the ninth one, I've experienced all other symptoms. Feeling like you're a burden on your parents and that you're just a waste of money isn't great. My grades are going downhill and I just burst into tears easily. Anyone feeling the same lately?

  18. 1. Feelings of discouragement',sadness or despair

    3.loss of appetite or overeating

  20. Yo my psychiatrist didn’t help ;; I just feel more guilty when I see them like I actually have no problems and many people deserve that therapy more than me

  21. I have had all of these Simptons since the 15th of April when my only relative that lived close toe died
    In 2019 that is

  22. I wish people would like this so everyone can see my message, I never cared about likes but people need to understand:
    Do what you love and what is in your power. You can't control others but you can control yourself. If you love watching movies then do that. If you love surfing the internet then do that. That is ok. Dont be pressured by society to do things that you dont want to or to be someone you dont want to be. Its ok if you don't have everything you want in life. Live life as you want to live it.

  23. I have all of this symptoms My mom tells me to visit psychologist but i think i dont need one . What should i do? I cant ignore the fact that i want to die for no reason

  24. Does being distracted by YouTube and social media,-not doing the hw you should be doing or going outside to play (because of that) count?

  25. 9/9 symptoms…

    And I've been experiencing this symptoms for almost 3 years, I want to seek help but I'm afraid everyone would think I'm just making this up.

  26. There are many ways how to despair.
    Think about your distant future.
    Think of an unpleasant past.
    Evaluate your own value.
    Stick to your appearance.
    Think if you are loved or not.
    There are many ways how to be fine.
    Plan what to do tomorrow.
    Forget everything you can no longer change.
    There is no standard of human value.
    Everyone is dissatisfied with their appearance.
    Love before be loved.

  27. I have a lot of these things but now when i look more in to it i see that i've have had some of The things though out the years does that Mean something like lack of wanting to do the things i love My hobbis?

  28. I wear my mask at school it’s fine I mean I’m fine, my mask helps me protect my self, I think I have something but not sure I feel really sad like all the time but sometimes really happy but I’m not idk how to explain it.

  29. depresion is just a visious circle of the mind you notice that you have no motivation to live, so you belive that and continue to think like that
    you become hopeless your thoughts are boosting your belives, you are what you think.

  30. What about me I think it's already been a year I have been like this.. Are this sadness or whattt.. They just say that I'm an attention seekers terrible person
