Do you think I could have depression?

Posted , 6 users are following.

i have been feeling down and not been my self for a few months now, but it seems to be getting worse. I don't see my friends anymore and I can't consentrate when I'm in school or even when I'm just watching TV. I've also been playing football for years and it always been something I've enjoyed but now I never want to go and I'd rather just sleep all day and do nothing. When I'm at school I either do no work at all and just can't concentrate or I do lots of work and don't stop till I have done it all. I get lots of bad headaches but the only last 5-10 minutes then go and come back soon after. 

Id like to know what you guys think and what I need to do.

    Dear Georgia

    Breaking down your symptoms, each of them could be associated with a number of different conditions. However, taken as a whole, although it needs a professional diagnosis, then it has all the hallmarks of Depression.

    Have you lost interest in things you used to enjoy doing? Have you started backing away from your friends and seek solitude instead? Do you swing from feeling like never getting out of bed, to sudden bursts of energy where you are like a tornado and do a week’s work in a night?

    If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then my advice would be to go and visit your Doctor who will be able to assess you and question you in more depth. This consultation will help to rule out any other causes and if it is determined that you have a form of Depression, then you will get the help you need.

    I sincerely hope this helps and we will be thinking of you and wishing you well.  :-)

      Georgia,

      You are showing very many of the signs that would be associated with depression.  

      You need to talk to a counselor to help you. 

      If you are not on any medications, you can get OTC St. John's Wort.  It's been show to help many people who have mild depression.   It can take a few weeks to start working.   If you are on medication, you may still be able to take it, but you have to discuss it with your docotr or pharmacy first.   

      Sometimes St. John's Wort can interfer with pharamcutical drugs and how they work.

    Hi you said you are still at school,  well is there a school counsellor you can talk to?  Or a favourite teacher?    Or you can google online depression tests which will give you an idea whether or not you suffer from depression.  x
