Today is the Most Depressing Day

Everybody gets down sometimes. But if it's stopping you from living your life, you may be depressed.

It's very unusual to feel happy every day. But if you've been really sad for weeks on end, and it's starting to take over your life, you could be depressed.

Depression is a real illness with real symptoms, and isn't something you can just snap out of. People with depression experience intense negative emotions that don't go away.

It's different in everyone, but here are some common indications:

  • Sadness, hopelessness and low moods that last weeks at a time

  • Getting very little or no enjoyment from life, particularly from things that you used to enjoy

  • Lack of motivation, even for small everyday tasks
