Hi Anon, 

While it is best to see a Psychologist and not self diagnose, below are some of the symptoms of depression. If these symptoms have lasted for the past two weeks and you are not experiencing grief(usually comes after loss and not just the loss of a loved one, even a missed opportunity is a loss, the end of a relationship is a loss, loss of job, etc) then it is time to see a proffessional even when experiencing grief, if it persists and affects the day to day running of your activities, it is best to talk to someone. 

The symptoms include:

  • Trouble concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions 
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness 
  • Pessimism and hopelessness 
  • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or sleeping too much 
  • Irritability 
  • Restlessness 
  • Loss of interest in things once pleasurable, including sex  
  • Overeating, or appetite loss 
  • Aches, pains, headaches, or cramps that won't go away 
  • Digestive problems that don't get better, even with treatment 
  • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings 
  • Suicidal thoughts or attempts
