People who feel depressed may feel unhappy for long periods of time. It might be that they are feeling unable to cope with day to day life and have lost interest in their usual activities. There are a range of feelings that come with depression.
Here are some signs that you or someone you know might be suffering from depression:
- Feeling sad most of the time
- Constantly tired
- Loss of interest in your usual activities
- Tearful more than usual
- Isolating yourself from others
- Sleeping pattern changed
- Irritable or angry
- Over or under eating

Some or all of these signs may be experienced by someone who is depressed. However, these symptoms are not limited to depression and there could be other factors to be considered.
