Symptoms of depression

the symptoms of depression are very hard to identify if a doctor tries to identify if you are depressed or a midwife they ask do you feel like you might harm yourself or baby of course you font but do they want to wait until you do?..

how do you know you’re depressed?

feeling tired do you struggle to get out of bed every morning

the stigma is if you’re depressed you cant get out of bed in the morning I struggle every morning but I have very rarely given in as I never wanted to be depressed I just wanted to be normal and having responsibilities like a mortgage or kids is the motivation I needed to get my bum out of bed every morning

obsessed with shopping having certain things that you had to have trawling websites for weeks until you found it at the right price why well again it’s for the drugs when we shop we produce the harmone dopamine its a real high and you get a real buzz and makes you feel good but after every high there’s a low did I need that could I afford that of course not then anxiety kicks in, you hide your purchases, hide bank statements and just feel guilty was it worth the answer is yes why is the country in such debt because we’re DEPRESSED

low self esteem and self worth

ive always had low confidence and self worth could never understand why I felt like I did but these feelings brought me to a real low and a life long eating dusorder that  ruled my life.

unable to laugh, sing, smile, being unsocial, anxious all the time, irritable, moody, problems sleeping, over analysing things, being irrational, worrying, obsessed with organising and planning, low voice, scared of those in authority, confrontation and criticism.

Deal with it now go to your doc, ring a helpline or counsellor to help understand what treatment is best for you, listen to your body and mind and don’t let depression control your life and kill your personality and you can enjoy life again.
