Updated on January 6, 2021

Depression occurs to at least 20 million American adults every year.

- Significant and sudden changes in sleep patterns and appetite

If you are experiencing at least five of the symptoms above and are beginning to interfere with family activities or work for more than a week, ask your doctor for a thorough checkup.

Just be honest and open to what and how you are feeling.

Don't even think about diagnosing yourself. Similarly, you cannot rely on a friend or a member of your family for diagnosis. Only a doctor who is properly trained to investigate illnesses is the only one who can completely determine if you are having a depression episode.

If you wish, you can try self-assessment tests available on the Internet that can help you reduce your symptoms, or at least, prepare you when you visit your doctor. When you go for a visit, think of these tests as a way for a health care professional to better communicate your symptoms. Of course, online tests prove no match to the actual consultation.

Do not feel embarrassed, embarrassed or ashamed of your depression problem. People of different ages, ethnic groups, races and social classes have this problem. Although depression can occur at any age, depression usually develops in people who are between 25 and 44 years of age. If you have depression problems, you are not alone. Every day, there are more than 20 million American adults who are experiencing depression problems.

Be persistent and patient and you will find the method that suits you best for determining depression.
