2019-02-21 06:01
  • I feel guilty, I have no confidence?
  • I feel I am a failure or have let my family down?
  • I have lost interest in my hobbies; Most of the time I would rather be alone?
  • I often feel restless or tired?
  • I have trouble concentrating on things like homework or watching TV?
  • I have trouble sleeping or I sleep

too much?

  • My appetite has increased or decreased?
  • I have unrealistic ideas about the great things that I am going to do?
  • My thoughts race; I can’t slow my mind down?
  • I often think about death, thoughts about suicide pop into my mind?
  • I like very dangerous activities?
  • I use drugs and/or alcohol on a regular basis?

NOTE: If you have (or had) four or more of these feelings, and if they last longer than two weeks, you may have depression.
