Depression is widespread yet often overlooked or misunderstood. If they seek care, depressed individuals may live a normal life, but many are ashamed to acknowledge they have mental health concerns.
While you may recognize the physical symptoms of depression, there are a few typical psychological signals you should never overlook.
An inability to appreciate your former hobbies and a lack of interest in social activities like spending time with friends are signs that you're retreating.
You can't shut off from your thoughts and anxieties, which might induce insomnia and sleeplessness. You want to sleep and escape the world, but your thoughts keep you up.
While you may be indifferent and joyless, your response to unfavorable news may increase your emotional reactions or preoccupations with the situation. You become upset about everything.
Although pessimism, anger, and melancholy are typical parts of life, they might indicate a deeper problem when they last weeks or days.
