Some major mood disorder that can affect anyone

In Nigeria, we belittle mental health but many people suffer from depression and no, it does not mean one is just very sad. It is a major mood disorder that can affect anyone. So, here are some signs of depression to watch out for. Note though that symptoms differ from person to person.

*Anxiety
Although this is another condition on its own, it may occur in depressed people. Usually, there are signs of worry, inability to focus, restlessness or physical ones like muscular twitches.

*Drinking
Studies show that most depressed people tend to drink a lot or engage in substance abuse in a bid to alleviate their moods but to no avail and so they sink deeper into addiction.

*Change in sleeping patterns
For some people, they may suffer insomnia, wake up earlier than usual or even sleep more than usual. The point is that sleep stops being the way it used to be.

*Numbness
That feeling of being apart from everything happening around you, as though you are floating may be a pointer to depression. 

*Irritability
This may seem like an opposite to #2 but depression may manifest in some people as crankiness. At times, you may find yourself overreacting uncontrollably to small triggers. 

*Decreased sex drive
Many times, depression can make you lose interest in things and people you love. Depression can cause disinterest in sex and even mess with your fertility.

*Changes in weight
A marker of depression can be a loss of appetite, leading to a drop in your weight. It may also occur vice versa as weight gain due to overeating.
