Clinical depression is much more intense than simply feeling sad. It can cause a person to lose interest in regular hobbies and life in general. There is a medical cause for depression and it is very treatable.

Signs of Depression

Depression is characterized by the following feelings:  

  • Sadness.
  • Loss of interest in activities you usually enjoy.
  • Sleep disturbance.
  • Appetite changes – either eating too much or not enough.
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions.
  • Lack of energy or motivation.
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt.
  • Excessive worry and fears (in new mothers, these fears generally revolve around the baby).
  • Anxiety.
  • Thoughts of death or suicide.
