How do I know if I am depressed or just got the blues

I am a stay at home mom to 3 boys and I have no energy,don't care if I ever leave the house,panic when I do and I can't sleep at night and I pretty much do all the parenting by myself,hubby travels alot I feel all alone and not sure how to get my self up and going...I take care of my kids,I know that right now I am not the most out going mom but I know that they are well taken care of,so what are the signs of depression and how do I go about getting help and getting out of this fog I feel like I am under?
