Am I Depressed?

Are you wondering, "am I just tired and stressed or do I have depression?" Most of us experience ups and downs in mood and energy level. However, if you are consistently feeling down, lifeless, fatigued, empty, irritable, restless, having difficulty concentrating, or experiencing unexplained aches and pains, it might be depression. You don't have to be feeling sad to be depressed.

Depression can creep up slowly, but if you have been having symptoms of depression for weeks, it could mean depression has developed. If your mood, energy, physical pain, or concentration level is making it hard for you do routine life and work tasks, depression can be interfering in your life and may need treatment.

If you believe you are at risk for suicide, dial "911" or go immediately to the nearest hospital Emergency Room for immediate assistance. You can speak to a trained counselor 24/7 by calling the National Suicide Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
