Depression is sometimes called “the plague of the 21st century.” Studies show that it is actually a medical condition that can be treated like any other disease. However, the first step to get rid of the problem is to understand that your condition is actually depression and not something else. There are certain alarm bells you should know about to be able to identify it correctly.
We would like to provide you with the most common signs that you might be depressed and should consult your doctor.
You feel down\tired.
The lack of energy lasts for many days in a row even though your routine hasn’t changed much. You are tired as soon as you wake up.
You feel worthless and undeserving to be alive.
You may start to believe that you are useless. Suicidal thoughts may also occur and you may have no fear of death since you see no point in living.
You have concentration and/or memory problems.
You start forgetting about important things and cannot easily recall a name or a phone number. Listening to someone or reading a book becomes a challenge since you cannot focus on what is going on.
