How can you tell the difference? Sometimes I don't have the energy to do anything and I am not interest in doing anything anymore or even talking to anyone. things that I used to like aren't even appealing to me. So how do I know if this is depression or boredom?

AJL,

It can be a mixture of both. Sometimes I am just tired that I don't want to do anything even when I am not depressed. I think everyone goes through that phase, it just some people stay there longer than others.

Yeah, I have been here for a while now. sometimes I really can't tell if I am just bored or depressed or both. But I think that I am more depressed than anything else.

I am the opposite - although I think to a certain extent I am depressed, I become more disinterested in things when I am bored.

I agree they can feel the same way. But depression steals our interest in the everyday activities which used to bring us joy, and boredom usually lasts for a couple of hours, maybe. Depression will stay for days, then weeks... you know the drill.

I hear you sometimes i wonder if i am just bored or depressed.  sometimes the boredom makes me going depression. 
I can usually tell the difference because the things that interest me don't, and thats when i know i am depressed.
