Clinical Depression Symptoms

Symptoms of clinical depression include much more than simply the blues or the blahs. There is more to it than the normal, everyday ups and downs.

Do you feel depressed? You are not alone.  This "common cold of mental health" effects 15 million Americans, and the rates have been doubling roughly every ten years.


How can you tell if you are depressed?  The following are tell tale indicators.

  • feeling sad, hopeless or in despair for much of the time

  • tiredness and irritability, lack of energy and motivation

  • sleep disturbances -- insomnia, over sleeping or early morning waking

  • feelings of low self-esteem, worthlessness or guilt that is not warranted.

  • a lack of interest or pleasure in activities that were once enjoyed, including sex

  • difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions

  • feeling isolated and cut off from other people, even those who are close

  • chronic aches and pains that don't respond to treatment

  • thoughts of harming one's self, thoughts of death or suicide

When four or more of the above has lasted longer than two weeks or has interfered with ordinary functioning, you may very well be depressed. 

With many individuals, the first sign is that certain mental and emotional aspects of a person's life are out of balance.  One indicator that you may be depressed is an overwhelming and lingering sense of loss, hopelessness or helplessness.  The whole person may even feel affected, including the body, will, emotions and behaviors. 

Many depressed people can't perform even the simplest of activities, and others simply go through the motions -- though it is clear that he or she are not acting like her usual self.

Depression is often classified by doctors as mild, moderate or severe:

  • mild: symptoms are relatively less intense and may come and go
  • moderate: symptoms tend to be more distressing and persistent
  • severe: symptoms are likely to be intense, constant and debilitating.

Hidden Signs

There are some factors that may mask that a person is depressed. Some people try to cope by making themselves constantly busy — for example, taking on extra work or involving themselves in a flurry of social activity.

Others complain of physical aches and pains such as headaches or stomach aches rather than of feeling sad or distressed. It may only become clear that they are actually depressed when no physical cause for the aches and pains can be found.

Anxiety can also mask the fact that someone is depressed. People who are depressed are often very anxious, experiencing breathing difficulties, palpitations, stomach churning or pins and needles in the hands and feet, as well as feeling panicky, frightened or uneasy.

Friends and relatives may suspect that something is wrong because of how a persons’ mood, habits and behavior have changed.

Something Must Be Done

When the above are allowed to cycle automatically, this sad and hopeless state can maintain itself for weeks, months, even years -- making depression particularly insidious.  Something must be done.

The depressed person may be in such a state due to circumstances beyond his control.  At other times, however, depressed people are where they are because they have failed to see that they actually have choices and can bring about change in their lives.  This is an opportunity to bring about change.  You don't have to remain in this perpetual malaise.  Your life can be different. 

The good news is: this debilitating malady is treatable.

Anyone who suspects they are depressed should talk to their GP as soon as possible. The sooner the illness is identified, the sooner it can be treated.
