  • Feeling Helpless or Hopeless which leaves the person weak causing the person to sleep alot or barely sleep.
  • Sadness, guilt and a constant feeling of worthlessness
  • Change in eating or sleeping habit which may lead to weight gain or loss.
  • Difficulty concentrating or making a decision concerning important stuff.
  • Loss of interest in social activities or things once enjoyed. Always want to be in a dark room locked up.
  • Feeling of restlessness ad constant uneasiness.
  • Thoughts of self harm or suicide. Resulting to taking harmful substances that could cause extensive damage or even death.

From the above Signs you will notice that there are alot of people walking the streets depressed. You may also recognize someone these traits in you why? because a good majority of  people are a little depressed. The first step to any recovery process is acceptance. Although this checklist is by no way a diagnosis however, If you checked off at least 5 out of the 7 stated above then my advice is you definitely have a problem and that’s something to accept and we can start working on how to get better.

Use this new week to evaluate your mental state. Have a great day and week ahead. Love D.A

  2. we need to be aware that most happy people are depressed, even those that writes, Sings “happy” are not happy. They try to blindfold themselves and others from seeing the lower part of them. Until depression take them from the root and kill them unaware.
