I was suffering depression last year more so than ever before, and I just felt really weighed down about life in general. I was sleeping a lot, didn't really talk much to anybody, and didn't smile much at all. If your close family and friends really know you, they will see that something is wrong. My family knew because I'm usually talkative and quite outgoing, I became really quiet and just stared into nothing....they were like episodes. I would be ok for a little while and then the depression came over, and all of a sudden I was so into being alone. Basically it.
