Health officials Naomi Drakeford and Hillary Jones listed the symptoms of depression and shared some of the myths many still believe about the illness.

  1. Depression is more than just sadness. The most common symptom of depression is a bad mood. That’s why you can feel depressed and whiny. At the same time, you can carry out your daily activities as before, but you will have much more energy to go about it. And some joyful activities and hobbies may no longer bring you any pleasure.

  2. Depression can cause isolation. Depressed students often withdraw into themselves and isolate themselves from others. Also, this sign is easier to recognize for those who are sociable and prone to extroversion. And introverts just need to ask questions: What gives me loneliness? Is it really consuming me or charging me?

  1. Depression is more than just fatigue. Oftentimes, when people are tired they decide they are not sleeping well or have thyroid problems. However, it can actually be a symptom of depression. In addition, the person has difficulty in making decisions and concentrating.

  2. Depression manifests physically. In addition to fatigue, difficulty concentrating, the person may experience changes in appetite, sleep (for example, insomnia, increased or decreased hunger). Depression can also manifest as mental and physical slowing down: for example, people may begin to walk more slowly or feel heaviness in their legs.

  3. Depression can manifest itself in different intensities.. It is important to understand that depression can be mild, moderate or severe. Also, the experience of depression is different for everyone.

News cannot be equated with a doctor’s prescription. Consult an expert before making a decision.
