Feelings of emptiness or despair that are extreme, intense, and interfering with a person’s ability to function, may well be signs of depression. Being depressed is very different to having an off-day or feeling sad in response to normal situations in life. It is a condition in which the person can experience feelings of utter hopelessness and inadequacy, and in which there is a complete loss of interest, even in the people and things that once gave them tremendous pleasure.

Some of the symptoms of depression include:

  • A reduction in concentration and memory
  • Decision making problems
  • A urge to withdraw from others
  • A reduction in the enjoyment of previously pleasurable activities
  • A loss of appetite or overeating
  • Insomnia or excessive sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of sex drive.
  • Neglect or self-care
