Almost everyone feels a little bit blue from time to time, and that's normal. After all, everything about life isn't always rainbows and butterflies. But sometimes, that sadness manifests into something bigger.Initially, it can be difficult to differentiate between a typical, fleeting sort of sadness and a chronic, lasting condition that needs professional intervention. There are, however, subtle signs you may have depression and knowing them can really make a difference in both your overall mental health and how you feel day to day.
It's well-known that major life disruptions such as the sudden loss of a job, death of a loved one, or a sudden, messy, major break-up cause a lot of stress, which can be a trigger for a mood disorder like depression. If you or a loved one show any of these nine signs, it could be a reason to see your doctor, psychiatrist, or clinical psychologist just in case. Depression can be treated, so see your doctor for help.
