Depression doesn’t happen as per someone’s age, race or gender. Depression can happen out of too much stress, social anxiety, verbal abuse, loss of job, unexpected results and so on. Also, problems in relation can make one depressed. In such cases, relationship counselling can prove to be helpful. The counsellor will help the couples to understand each other better.
Though it may get hard to detect if anyone is suffering from depression, but one can realize it by signs that indicate one is suffering from depression.
Teary eyes – In depression, a person will feel like crying most of the times. Normally, a sad quote or a song of sad lyrics will not make a happy person cry. But, a depressed individual will feel sadder and eventually she or he will cry. A sad scene of a film will make a depressed person cry, but others will not be affected by such a sad scene. You may think that these things are normal. No, it isn’t. If you found yourself in such situations, or if you notice any one of near and dear ones showing such sign, you can consider opting for counselling services or visiting an expert of psychology.
No enjoyment – A depressed person will not enjoy the things that he used to enjoy previously. When your hobbies, meeting with old friends as well as new friends, visiting new places, watching movies in the well-known multiplexes and others are not making you happy anymore, then it means that you are suffering from depression.
Mood swings – Mood swings happen more in case of a depressed person, but a normal person don’t have mood swings. It is a fact that it is not normal to feel sad all the time. If you feel upset even in a disco or party or in a wedding, then it is happening because of depression.
Lack of sleep – Less sleep will make you less energetic and tired. A depressed individual cannot sleep peacefully at night. He will take more time to fall asleep. Many times a depressed person will wake up in the mid night and start to think all those things that are troubling him. Sometimes, a depression sufferer will feel sleepier than a non-depressed person.
Appetite – Changes in the appetite will happen when you will be depressed. You may not become hungry like before and you may not like to eat enough food to fill your tummy. All these actions aren’t normal and are the signs of depression. On the contrary, some depressed people will eat more.
