Signs of Depression

Depression is a devastating condition. It is a type of mental health disorder that can seem to happen for no reason. Men and women are prone to it. So are teens. When depression hits, it can feel overwhelming and impossible to deal with on your own. If you have the signs of depression, you do not need to deal with it alone. Contact our Red Oak Recovery® professionals at 866.457.7590 to learn more about your treatment options.

What Are the Signs of Depression?

There are many things people can experience if they are going through depression. Every situation is vastly different. Take a few minutes to look at yourself from an objective view. Ask a family member or friend to help you. Do you have any of these signs of depression? If so, our depression treatment center in NC can help.

Hopeless: You feel hopeless. You feel like no matter what you do, you are not going to be able to make things good or better. You may feel helpless to change. This feeling is one of the most common signs of depression.

Loss of Interest: Do you no longer have an interest in the things you used to enjoy? Perhaps you no longer want to be around people who used to make you happy. Perhaps you are no longer able to embrace activities or hobbies.

Depressed, Sad Mood: You may feel as though you are just sad. You may not even know why, but you do not feel happy, motivated, or able to laugh. In some cases, there is a profound level of sadness that seems to occupy your mind.

Anxiety: You may experience the symptoms of anxiety more often. These symptoms include feeling nervous, having a rapid heart rate, and feelings of dread or panic. Anxiety can happen alongside depression.

Sleep Problems: Many people who have depression also have trouble sleeping. They may feel tired all of the time. They may have insomnia. Sleep changes are important to look for as signs of depression.

What to Do if You Feel This Way
