How to Identify Signs of Depression : Low Self Esteem: Signs of Depression


Hello. My name is Leslie Moselle and I’m from
Tampa, Florida. And, on behalf of Expert Village, these are the signs of depression. For a doctor
or other health professional to diagnose depression, most of the following signs and symptoms must
be present for at least two weeks. Low Self-Esteem or Self-Loathing: With this symptom of depression,
you will have feelings of worthlessness and excessive guilt. You’ll be overly critical
to your perceived faults and mistakes, not allowing you to take part in the things that
you once loved. What you do and feel will most likely be followed by statements such
as “I can’t do anything right,” “I give up,” “I hate myself,” or “I am worthless.” All
of these thoughts will leave you less inclined to take action in your life, in turn, leading
to more destructive symptoms of depression.

  5. Heerreee we go…..people who are depressed don't need the DSM-IV (or whatever) to tell them they're depressed. They bloody well know!

  6. @BaybeeLouise95 The truth is the the ROOT CAUSE of depression (and the cure) is NOT medication. Depression is caused by 1. Having a weak personal boundary, which means that you CHOOSE to ALLOW every negative thing that people say to you right into ou and effect you deeply (instead of thinking, they are an idiot). This ties into choosing to have an INTERNAL locus of control- don't care what anyone else thinks of you! You ARE NOT HELPLESS and CAN take action to change your life with decisions!

  8. I have all your symptoms, except for a now self esteem and thoughts of death. Also, the thoughts behind the symptoms are quite different that what you have described.
