Hello and welcome to HealingWell. You have come to the right place to find warm and caring members that know what your going through.
Symptoms of depression include:
Loss of interest in normal daily activities
Feeling sad or down
Crying spells for no apparent reason
Trouble focusing or concentrating
Difficulty making decisions
Unintentional weight gain or loss
Being easily annoyed
Feeling fatigued or weak
Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches
Depression symptoms can vary greatly because different people experience depression in different ways. A 25-year-old man with depression may not have the same symptoms as a 70-year-old man, for instance. For some people, depression symptoms are so severe that it's obvious something isn't right. Others may feel generally miserable or unhappy without really knowing why.
If you have any symptoms of depression, seek medical help as soon as possible. Depression usually doesn't get better on its own, and it may even get worse if left untreated. Reference: Mayo Clinic
If you choose to go home now, then go for it. It is alright to change your mind about a decision. Give yourself permission to come home where you have accesss to professional help and do not feel you are a loser..............you are a winner for even going to Japan in the first place.
Keep on talking to us and know we care.
