What Are Some Signs Of Depression?

So recently I've had a lot of people in my life thinking I might have depression, but when I went to the hospital to see I would lie about a question to make it seem as if I wouldn't have depression, and make it seem like there was nothing wrong with me at all but I'm kind of regretting it... What are some signs of depression to see maybe if I do have depression or not...

Constant thoughts of death & suicide
Mood swings
Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
Fatigue and decreased energy
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
Irritability, restlessness
Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex

Women experience depression more often than men. Biological, life cycle, and hormonal factors that are unique to women may be linked to women's higher depression rate. Women with depression typically have symptoms of sadness, worthlessness, and guilt.

Men with depression are more likely to be very tired, irritable, and sometimes even angry. They may lose interest in work or activities they once enjoyed, and have sleep problems.

usually secluded from society, too the point of having negative side effects on your health, aren't ever happy, If you are happy then I would just not let what people say affect your mood. Could just be your personality.

straying on the past, denial.
