Depression has many meanings. It can be used in everyday contexts, describing how we feel when bad things happen or things don’t go our way.

Signs of depression, Deception Expert Nicholas Gill says:

The boundary between everyday feelings of depression and clinical depression isn’t always clear. In general, it has to do with the number of symptoms experienced and the length of time someone is experiencing them.

When someone is depressed they can experience a range of things including:

  • Feeling hopeless or helpless
  • Lack of energy
  • Changes in sleeping and eating patterns
  • Crying a lot or feeling agitated
  • High use of alcohol or drugs
  • Losing their temper
  • Withdrawing socially
  • Headaches or stomach aches
  • Feeling empty
  • Feeling anxious
  • Losing interest in activities they usually enjoy.

However, it’s important to repeat that depression has many meanings and just because you’re feeling depressed, doesn’t mean you’re suffering from clinical depression says deception expert Nicholas Gill .

There can be a danger of medicalising everyday emotions, so talking about your feelings honestly and openly can help to fully understand what’s going on for you.
