I looked up the symptons of depression and 90% of them i have. Symptons like low-self esteem, lack of energy, poor sleeping and eating habits, feelings of anxiety, lack of concentration, difficulity in making decisions, loss of interest and also digestive problems. I had alot of these problems for a long time, but i really started noticing it the past 2 weeks. My friends are hanging out with new groups of people and everytime im with a group of people that im unfamiliar with i say absolutely nothing and feel worthless for being there and unwanted. I want to avoid going to the doctor. Are there things i can add to my everyday life and will improve my situation.
Well i just found out that im depressed
The internet is great for looking up info but it ain't great for diagnosing yourself. I really suggest that if you think that you may be depressed that you go to a doctor.
I agree that you should NOT self-diagnose and go see a doctor for an evaluation.
Ther is a definite difference between being depressed and having clinical depression. If you think you have clinical depression your best bet is to seek out medical help and get a proper diagnosis and then follow up with treatment. everyone gets depressed from time to time, sometime for long periods of time and the two while haivng ismilar symptoms, have drastically different effects and options.
I agree with everyone else. Just because you feel down a little now doesn't mean you have depression. Everyone gets depressed every now and then (that's what they say, anyway)
the more pot i smoke the happoer I become :laughing:
now when I was drinking daily and packing away a bottle of vodka then chasing it with a 24 pack of beer, during that time I was depressed.
even in teh days gone by that I would wake and bake and was high all day every day I never was unhappy, I was fun, i was happy as a fucking clam in fact.
as a side note I drank after I became depressed, and my depression was the standard variety that went away with some time and some growing up. I nevre veiwed pot as making my unhappy though.
