If those are all changes in how you normally are, they could add up to depression. There are other things that are similar to depression, like thyroid imbalances and other things, so it's a good idea for the doctor to run some blood tests.
feeling irritable and being easily angered can be signs of depression, particlularly in men. often it goes undiagnoseded and they just belive that thery are 'angry '... some antidepressants are better for psople who have anger as a symptom and work (with counselling) to bring anger down quckly.
in a nutshell signs of depression include:
chhange of mood lasting more than 2 weeks
change in sleep pattern (excessive sleep or early morning waking)
loss of pleasure in previously enjoyed activiites
difficulty getting motivated / feeling apathetic no energy
easily upset or angered,
persitent feelings of sadness
feeling hopless about the future
feeling worthless or negative abotu yourself
change in appetite (increase or decrease(
withdrawal from family and friends
best way to find out is to see a doctor and be very truthful abotu how you are feeling. then he can do some tests to rule out other conditions and get you some treatment. it is very treatable
I'd recommend seeing a counselor in addition to a doctor. There's more time to talk about what's going on in your life with a counselor. They have a knack for touching on important things. If you're naturally shy, that could be playing a part in this. As tempting as it is to sleep a lot, that acts as a depressant and zaps energy. Diet is important. Sugar is bad for depression.
In my opinion what you should do is get a proper diagnosis so you know what you are facing and what is the best couse of action. Start with the family doctor and get a referal to someone with more experience in mental health. The sooner that you begin the fight will make a huge difference in the long run.
