Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling once said, “Depression isn’t just being a bit sad. It’s feeling nothing. It’s not wanting to be alive anymore.”Rowling went on to say, “I don’t wish it on anyone, but if they would know how it feels, I swear they would think twice before they just shrug it off.”
Some signs that you are depressed is too much sleep or too little. You can’t find the energy to take care of yourself for example, eating junk food, not washing. Wanting to hide from the world is another symptom and the thought of spending time with a group is the last thing you want. Things that usually bring you pleasure or excitement you have no interest in. The joy and life get sucked out of everything. Your thoughts can go between self-pity and beating yourself up. Pessimism is a permanent state of mind. There is hope working with a counsellor or therapist can help you to explore the roots of your depression.
