Exclamation Am I depressed???

Hi there. I am not sure if I am depressed or not. I understand you are not a doctor so I know you cannot diagnose me but do I sound depressed? Here goes.

1. I am sad all the time. I know you will say this is my hormones or something but I have been like this for about a year or two.
2. I have no energy anymore and there are times I feel like giving up. Laying in bed all day and sleeping forever
3. I am always crying and I cannot find a reason why.
4. I hate myself so much. I insult myself and even let people pick on me because I deserved it. I am pathetic and useless. Really I am a failure. Everything I do is wrong.
5. I self harm and pick my eye brows out. I just hate myself so much it hurts.
6. I keep thinking that I deserve to be punished.
7. I can't sleep at night.
9. I am going of my usual hobbies and am isolating myself.
10. I don't eat much anymore.
11. More importantly I am very morbid and I think about death all the time. I am not suicidal but I have thought of suicide.

Should I go to the doctor?
Thanks.

I think you should definitely see a psychiatrist or psychologist if you have thoughts of suicide. I'm not a doctor, but your symptoms sound like you're going through depression. Classic symptom include losing interest in the hobbies you usually enjoy, self-punishment and self-loathing, restlessness or sleeping a lot, and loss of appetite. You should definitely seek help. I know how you feel. Right now I'm going through a particularly bad bout of depression and I just feel so desperate and lonely

Re: Am I depressed???

It sounds to me like you are definitely depressed. I agree with the post before mine. You definitely need to see a doctor. I would see a psychiatrist and ask for a full evaluation to determine what kind of depression you have and what the best plan of action is. I would also look into seeing a therapist. I always feel better after I get to talk to someone that isn't so close to the situation and can offer objective advice. Sometimes it's hard, but it will teach you how to change your behaviors so the depression doesn't get the best of you. It's also cathartic to have a good cry, every once in a while.
