Depression is a war in your head. It's things that make you feel worthless. It doesn't always mean suicidal. It's all kinda of things. I've had depression for a couple years now.. You will know when you have it. Here's how I knew I had it. I cried, I was mean to others, ( mostly because I felt insecure), I couldn't control my anger, I was negative, I never slept, I was dysfunctional, I thought I had nothing going for me, I lost interest in everything, I thought about death a lot, my grades dropped, I didn't care about anyone or anything, I was always mad or sad, etc. This still goes on with me today but I learned how to control it better and became stronger. I helped myself through this journey. It's really tough when you have depression. I've been helping myself for 2 years now trying to fight it, I've been getting by. It's tough tho. If you think you have it, I suggest you to tell someone so you don't have to go through anything alone and most importantly, you don't hurt yourself. Once your depressed, usually all you think about is dying. Stay strong.
Crying for no real reason. Wanting to stay in bed all the time, and see no one. Feeling like a dark cloud of doom is hanging over you all the time. Not being able to see hope for the future. Those are a few symptoms of depression.
