Depression

Everyone experiences the blues now and then.  It can be puzzling to figure out if you are having a bout of the blues or if you are depressed.  Ask yourself:

  • How are you sleeping? Too much? Too little?  Do you fall asleep ok, but wake up in the wee hours and can't fall back asleep?
  • Is your appetite ok? Have you gained or lost weight unintentionally?
  • Are you finding that you are crying more than you usually do?
  • Are you having thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else?
  • Do you find you don't have interest in things that you used to enjoy?
  • Do you have trouble concentrating?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, you may be depressed.
