I think I'm depressed...

I hear the commercials about depression medication, and at first I didn't think much about it. But now it's making me think that maybe not all people feel like I do right now. I don't cry all day, so I didn't think I was depressed, but I'm not as peppy and happy as I used to be, I'm tired and never want to get out of bed, I get all teary at everything, and don't really "enjoy" things like I used to. But I'm not the typical (if there even is a typical) depressed woman, I don't walk around moping or anything like that.., idk what I'm really asking about here. Anyone here suffer from depression? Your thoughts?

I've delt with depression but I'm currently dealing with thyroid issues. Both thyroid and depression are quite treatable.  get your thyroid levels checked if that's normal then seek therapy and maybe meds. the important thing is if you are having a hard time dont keep it to yourself and let it get worse.

Do you have a doctor that you can go to?

i'm not the typical depressed person either. i just don't play my guitar anymore and i'm tired all the time and i'm pretty quick to snap into a pissy mood. there are different levels of depression (and i don't feel the need to medicate) but it's still depression. i know i'm depressed and i try to do things to help myself like taking a nap in the pool or sending the kids off so i can have some quiet at night :)

I'm on public aid insurance. I don't think I can ask them to test me for things like that, I'm not sure.

I'm concerned with getting medically labeled as depressed- you always see that come back and bite people. Idk I guess I have a hard time accepting that some part of me could be considered "broken".

 Maybe you could start off by just saying you are tired, you have no energy..... Low iron could be a good place to start....

So don't tell anyone. It's personal. I have been to counselling a few times in my life. And had depression a few times. I am harley broken. I am human. And so are you. You can live with the sadness or you can try to do something to make it better. Don't stay 'broken'. Get 'fixed'. HUG.

vitamin b complex is a brain booster, stress/fatigue reliever and energy booster. You'd see the difference in one day:)

I agree too to have your thyroid checked. I think It'll be covered if you have a low cost insurance.
