Everyday there is something not quite right.

You feel tense and you aren’t sure why.

You can’t talk to people without worrying what they are thinking about you.

You can’t go into work without worrying about whether or not you are doing a good job.

Money is constantly on your mind, even though you probably have enough.

You can’t seem to enjoy things like other people.

Making that big change is too much to handle.


If you are clinically depressed you would have at least two of the following symptoms for at least 2 weeks:

  • An unusually sad mood that does not go away
  • Loss of enjoyment and interest in activities that used to be enjoyable
  • Tiredness and lack of energy

As well, people who are depressed often have other symptoms such as:

  • Loss of confidence in themselves or poor self-esteem
  • Feeling guilty when they are not at fault
  • Wishing they were dead
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Moving more slowly or, sometimes becoming agitated and unable to settle
  • Having sleeping difficulties or, sometimes, sleeping too much
  • Loss of interest in food or, sometimes eating too much. Changes in eating habits may lead to either loss of weight or putting on weight.
