Symptoms of Depression

Doctors will make decisions about diagnosis based upon guidelines in place, with the main guideline being the International Classification of Diseases (ICD -10). Some of the symptoms you may experience are:

  • Low mood, feeling sad, irritable or angry.
  • Less energy and feeling less able to do things.
  • Losing interest in activities you used to enjoy.
  • Loss of concentration.
  • Becoming tired easily.
  • Sleeping and eating less or eating more.
  • Feeling less good about yourself (loss of confidence).
  • Feeling guilty or worthless.
  • Losing interest in sex.
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide, and making suicide attempts.

You do not have to have all these to be diagnosed with depression, but recognising a change in these earlier could help get you the support you need earlier hopefully aiding a swifter recovery.
