The Top Ten

1 Thoughts that you would be better off dead

Starting right off with the suicidal tendencies. This is the most horrible thing to feel and/or do. Thinking that the world would be better off without you is so heartbreaking. Things may seem bad at the moment, but it will get better if you try to help yourself. And everyday you are trying. You feed yourself, you get out of bed, you bathe. The simple things help. Things may look so horrible, and hurting and/or killing yourself isn't going to help it. As hard as it may seem, try to keep a few positive thoughts in that head. - Supernatural

Yeah I've though bout this a couple of times when I was depress ed. t hese symptoms can literally make you want to kill yourse lf. i f anyone's suffering from this symptom of depression I'd like to say that death is bad and you WONT be better off de ad. y ou should be happy to be alive as no matter how crappy the world may seem, you are unique and there's always a place for y ou. d ying will not make things bett er. i n fact it will leave more sadness in its aftermath. - Toucan

My dad killed himself a couple months ago I feel stupid to post this but he had a mental illness or depression he was abusive and I'm only twelve and a lot of things happened but I will always miss him so if you are ever thinking of killing yourself then think of who it will hurt if you do kill yourself not just you so don't be selfish...

To be honest I'm thinking of killing myself - lovingicecreams

2 Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed

Just imagine, practically everything you enjoy at the moment, not interesting or making you happy anymore. Nothing seems fun. Imagine not even your favorite song making you want to sing along. Not even hum to it. - Supernatural

Sometimes you have to force yourself to do activities you "enjoy" just to stay anchored. But finding the will to force yourself is hard when you're depressed. It's a catch-22. - PetSounds

Definitely. I have to force myself to hang out with friends most of the time. They know I don't have the strong enough will to do so, so they come to my house, force me to change, and take me out the door. At the end, I actually quite enjoy being with them. - Supernatural

I lost interest in my family and playing with them, I guess we all just grow up and like different things. - KianaLexi

I think no one loves me. Not even a single bit.
I almost killed myself but I didn't have the guts to do it.
I am not useful. I can't even do the most simple things.
I sometimes wish that I would have end myself on that day.

3 Feeling down, depressed, and/or hopeless

A truly horrible feeling that engulfs everything about your life. You can't get up in the morning. You can't make the simplest observations or conclusions because you're clouded by sadness. You can't see any light at the end of any tunnels your life may take you through. And people claim that they've experienced this because they've had personal tragedies like the loss of a child, but this is a disease that can stick with you for the rest of your life. - PositronWildhawk

There are times when someone feels bad. After a heartbreak, being fired, or just simple things like not getting that A on the test. But you move on and start to gradually feel better over time. But feeling so sad, every single day along with the hopelessness is just so mentally exhausting. It's so horrible. I've experienced, and still am experiencing this, and I would not want to wish it upon others. - Supernatural

That hopelessness is what made me crave for death. My depression lasted for a long long time and I had a tough time getting over it. I rejected medicines and decided to face it naturally but I couldn't take it anymore. I was always feeling down. There was no mix of emotions. Only a feeling of sadness, hopeless and depressed. - LightningBlade

It's hard to battle depression, and it's not as easy as it looks like from how the media represents it. I hope you're getting, or are better. And if you ever need someone to talk to, I'm here. I understand all those feelings, for I'm still in that depressed state, and will do whatever possible to help if you want. - Supernatural

This is one of the most common ones, though - MLPFan

4 Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness

Sometimes even asking for necessities makes people with depression feel like their bothering others so much. I mean, I feel like such a burden when I ask my dad to take me to the library to return books. I would rather walk an hour to get to the library, than bother my dad to drive me there. Even texting people feels like I'm bothering them from other important things. - Supernatural

5 Decreased energy, fatigue, or feeling “slowed down"

Before I knew I had depression, I always thought I was extremely lazy. Getting out of bed was, and still is kind of a hassle, even after being awake for hours. Feeling tired after a workout or a hard day is normal, but feeling this constant fatigue for no reason at all is so demanding towards your body and mind. More than it already is. - Supernatural

Very very recently I experienced this. My arms and legs felt too heavy to move. I actually ended up crumpled in the corner of my bedroom, crying my eyes out for no apparent reason. This doesn't happen often but when it does, it can last for a couple of hours. Awful. - Britgirl

6 Poor appetite or overeating

These two things, whichever you may have is bad. Poor appetite can lead to malnutrition and even more fatigue. Overeating can lead to other health problems as well. It's good to have someone at home that reminds you to eat if you have a poor appetite. Or someone that moderates your meals and what you eat if you're overeating. - Supernatural

I can barely eat a bowl of cereal in the morning, let alone three complete meals. - Merilille

I never eat breakfast but I eat way too much for dinner. - AnonymousChick

7 Feeling bad about yourself and/or that you are a failure

Something that I can feel often under depression is that I'm not the intelligent, capable and adaptable person I once was. The horrible paranoia that I'm losing my touch on what I've devoted my life to makes it seem so much more likely that I'm going to fail, and then wind up in a position where I can't be the person I know I should be. The thoughts take over my thinking altogether, and I've spent time desperately trying to prove myself to my peers, and when it affected my performance in the zone, desperately looking for any good news or consolation, and usually what people would say to me would not change anything, no matter how kind they were. - PositronWildhawk

Another really horrible thing to feel. Having such a low self-esteem that you feel that you aren't good for anyone. That your friends feel pity for you of how lonely you are, and that that's the only reason they even hang out with you. That you haven't done anything important in life. But it's not true. As impossible as it may seem, people do care deeply about you. You being alive is important enough. Maybe you don't see it, but you simply being there matters to your loved ones. It takes time to learn to love yourself, but it's okay. Those who care will help you until you get there. - Supernatural

I feel as if I'm not good enough like my best friend, she gets all the recognition and I'm like her tiny little black shadow... - KianaLexi

I have really low self esteem and It's so bad I think that people gossip about me even though it's not true. - AnonymousChick

8 Insomnia or oversleeping

With me its insomnia. How weird is it that I always feel so tired, but I can never seem to sleep. - Supernatural

I can't sleep most of the time so I write poetry at night. - AnonymousChick

9 Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions

To me, it's still a huge surprise that I'm even passing my classes at this point. Sometimes I can't concentrate on whatever is going on in class, or even remembering what someone told me a few minutes ago. It's hard to be suffering from this. It's difficult to accomplish daily tasks because you're not able to fully focus. - Supernatural

It's particularly overwhelming when you're trying to show yourself that you can do these things, and they're difficult no matter how simple they are. You also worry about how you've been affected by what you did in the moment, because your future is even more chaotic than your present. - PositronWildhawk

I'm awful at making decisions and it's a miracle that I can remember my own name. I freak out at having to choose a movie to go to, and then I'll barely remember any of it once I leave. - Merilille

So I have a test next week. I remember actually no actual thing at all from the class. - AnonymousChick

10 Restlessness or irritability

I verbally lashed out at a good friend once because he kept asking me questions in Economics class, and I was so down that I couldn't analyse the simplistic graph in front of me. I was terrified that day that I'd lost my friendship with him, even though I knew he understood I was at least stressed out, and has so far been the only time I've been irritable with him. - PositronWildhawk

I am constantly tapping my foot, chewing on my nails, wringing my hands, and/or lolling my head around. I get irritated at the smallest of things. For example, a simple clinking of a spoon against a bowl or my parents simply talking to me. It sounds like dumb reasons to get irritated over, but I can't help it. - Supernatural

Irritability was something that always got me into further trouble when I was in depression. - LightningBlade

I'm always bouncing my leg and I get in trouble for it. - AnonymousChick
