Key Features of Depression:
Persistent Sadness: Individuals with depression often experience a large sense of sadness or despair that lasts for most of the day, nearly every day.
Loss of Interest or Pleasure: A typical sympton of depression is absence of pleasure from activities and interests that were once enjoyable.
Fatigue and Low Energy: Many people with depression feel extremely fatigued, even after getting enough sleep, and may have a general lack of energy.
Changes in Appetite or Weight: Depression can lead to significant changes in appetite, resulting in weight loss or gain. Some individuals may experience a reduced appetite, while others may overeat.
Sleep Disturbances: Sleep problems are common in depression, and individuals may experience insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep) or hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness).
Feelings of Worthlessness or Guilt: People with depression often have negative self-perceptions and may feel worthless, guilty, or excessively self-critical.
Difficulty Concentrating: Depression can affect a person’s ability to think clearly, concentrate, and make decisions.
Physical Symptoms: Some individuals with depression may experience physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive problems, or unexplained aches and pains.
Suicidal Thoughts: In severe cases, depression can lead to thoughts of death or suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, it’s crucial to seek immediate help from a mental health professional or a crisis hotline.
