Symptoms of Depression

People who are depressed may experience some or all of the following symptoms:

  • trouble sleeping or excessive sleeping
  • dramatic change in appetite, often with weight gain or loss
  • fatigue and lack of energy
  • feelings of worthlessness, self-hate, and inappropriate guilt
  • extreme difficulty concentrating
  • agitation, restlessness, and irritability
  • inactivity and withdrawal from usual activities
  • feelings of hopelessness and helplessness
  • recurring thoughts of death or suicide

Adults who are depressed typically suffer from low self-esteem and an inability to enjoy activities that used to interest them. In some cases, they may be prone to sudden, unprovoked bouts of anger. Depressed children on the other hand, may act out, have trouble sleeping, or sleep too much. Their school work is often affected by an inability to focus and may be the first indication of a problem.
