Life is full of surprises. Problems and misfortunes are a part of life. Everyone will experience unhappiness, and many people may become depressed temporarily as a result. Experiences such as failure can commonly result in feelings of self blame and worthlessness. Personal losses cause feelings of sadness, emptiness, and disappointment.
These feelings are normal, and will pass after a short time.
Depression symptoms include: an increase or decrease in appetite and or weight gain/loss, sad despairing moods, sleep problems, loss of interest in work, hobbies, people, withdrawn from family members or friends, feeling useless, pessimistic, hopeless, agitated, irritable, trouble concentrating, crying easily, thoughts of suicide.
If you or anyone you know suffer from these symptoms it is hard to change on your own. Sometimes you need the help of a professional. Family TLC helps people make those changes.
