Hello I'm new to this and felt it was easier to share this online. I'm not actually certain if I am suffering from depression or whether it's just something else but once I've explained hopefully everyone will be able to give me a decent answer.
I seem to go through phases where sometimes I'm fine and then other times I feel down. This sometimes can change in a few days or few weeks. I'm 27 single, still living with my parents. I had a job but quit 3 months ago due to silly things. I have often felt down in the past 2 years though but certainly this year it's struck me the most. I think quitting my job has clearly had an effect on me too as I've still not found a new job yet and part of me wants to give up.
I also feel that I've become very needy in the past few years, for example if someone doesn't reply to me on Facebook or Whatsapp and have clearly read it I seem to get a little frustrated by it. I was never like this before. I also often feel very lonely due to the fact I'm single and I always moan that some of my friends never make an effort with me apart from a few. I rarely seem to go out that much. If I do then it's to play snooker with some mates or go to town etc. Also ever since I left my job no one from that workplace have bothered to contact me apart from like 1 person which has made me feel undervalued too. I also seem to reminise about the past far too much, the days when things used to be good and I was young and somewhat popular.
Are all of these thoughts normal or is this a sign that I am suffering from depression, Any comments are all welcome and appreciated!
