Am I Depressed, or am I Sad?

SAMAEL KREUTZ & Herzwerk Blog

Important question.  In fact, it could be a life and death question.  Everybody gets the blues.  Sometimes they linger.  Sometimes depression doesn’t fit the made-for-TV stereotypes we associate with it.

Here’s a really good list to look through.  If you might fit into this type of description — especially if you have several these that would apply to you, click the link at the bottom to find out more.

 

Depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day. An individual may express feeling sad or empty, or others may observe it (ex: appears tearful). Children and adolescents may exhibit irritability

•Markedly diminished interest or pleasure in all, or most, daily activities most of the day, nearly every day

•Significant weight changes (ex: a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month), or decrease or increase in appetite nearly every day

•Insomnia or hypersomnia (sleeping too much) nearly every day

•Psychomotor agitation or retardation nearly every day

•Fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day

•Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt nearly every day

•Indecisiveness or diminished ability to think or concentrate nearly every day

•Recurrent thoughts of death, recurrent suicidal ideation without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or a specific plan for committing suicide
