Hi people,

You may know the commons symptoms of depression, but how about the others signs that you haven't heard, and maybe no one really  talks about ?

According to, Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act.

So here are the 6 signs symptoms,

  1. Feel like an observer of your own life. Have you ever felt like you were just an observer of your life? And instead of actively making choices? Do you find yourself surrendering to what goes around you? For those whose depression it can feel as though as you are constantly on the slideliness of your own life, as much as they may wanna take an active part. It can often feel like the world continues to turn. leaving them behind.
  2. Can't get out of bed.  Have you ever felt stuck in your bed? Like even when you want to get out, you just can't?. sometimes with depression, people may feel stuck in their bed. It's not so much about being tired but as it is the anxiety that comes along with it. The rumination, physical symptoms or other factor that may make it feel impossible to get out of bed despite the desire to start their day. The feeling of being stuck can be so painful because of the constant tension of wanting to get up but simply not being able to.
  3. Social withdrawal. You may know that social isolation or withdrawal is a common effect of depression. Though it may seem voluntary, those who social withdrawal may do so painfully. Depression can make people feel isolated, which can, in turn, worsen other symptoms. Isolation can turn painful when people lose their sense of belonging and purpose and deprive themselves of the fulfillment that only social interaction can bring about. 
  4. Crippling exhaustion. Has your exhaustion ever gone past just tired? Did it feel difficult to do things you normally enjoy? The exhaustion often brought about by depression can overtake the mind and body. This exhaustion can be debilitating, making it difficult to do the simplest of tasks, such as drinking water or taking shower. If you experiencing this, know that you are not alone nor you are lazy or doing anything wrong. Depression can consume so much energy from you, any level of exhaustion you may feel is totally valid.
  5. Overcrowded mind. Do you know what it's like to feel scatterbrained? It's almost as if your mind can't sit still and those inner thoughts keep coming at increasing speed. Depression can make this feeling frequent if not constant. You may have heard this as racing thoughts or rumination, but in any case, it can be painful to feel like you have no way to turn your mind off or allow yourself to relax. The chatter can make someone feel anxious, out of control, and helpless towards the potential torment of constant thoughts.
  6. Stigma and guilt. Even now it's almost impossible to talk about depression without talking about stigma. Though, we as a society may have grown into our acknowledgement of depsression, that's not to say that stigma is fully eradicated around the world. Often stigma can make people with depression feel guilty, ungrateful and ashamed. This could increase the negative self-talk that depression already brings about and can make those with depression feel like they have to suffer in silence. Stigmas hurt. Know that your feelings are very real and very valid, no matter what has been said to you or around you.

Did any of these signs relate to you?
