Is it all of it or few signs:
Depression is not the same as having the occasional "blues" or feeling sad every once in a while -- and then bouncing back to your old self. Depression can be mild, moderate or so severe that it affects every part of your life -- your body, your feelings, your thoughts and your behaviors. It can have an impact on your family relationships, your friendships and your ability to work, play or just get through your day. At its worst, depression can even make you feel like you don't want to live. These thoughts and feelings are not your fault. They can be part of depression.
When the sadness persists or keeps returning, when everyday things like sleeping, working, spending time with your family and simply enjoying life continue to be difficult, it is not "just the blues." You could be dealing with major depression.
People with depression may often feel or notice the following symptoms that last 2 or more weeks:
* Sad mood, worry, feeling empty
* Not being interested in things or not being able to enjoy the things that you used to
* Feeling more or less hungry, a change in weight (up or down)
* Trouble sleeping (waking up early or problems falling asleep), or sleeping too much
* Feeling tired or run down
* Feeling worthless, not having hope
* Problems keeping your focus or making decisions
* Thoughts of not wanting to live
