Getting out of bed in the morning is proving to be a difficult task. You feel distracted, isolated, sad and disconnected from the people and things you used to enjoy.
Feeling this way is impacting your family, friendships, school or career. You want to feel better but you're not sure how.
Depression doesn't just influence how you think and feel, it also affects your physical health. There is a misconception that depression is simply sadness. While sadness is often part of the depressive experience, it doesn't tell the whole story.
Depression is complex and often includes anger, irritability, lethargy, physical aches and pain as well as anxiety.
