The fact that you even need to ask whether or not you are depressed is a pretty good sign that probably something is wrong. The ironic part is though that depression really is all in your head, which is why
it's such a big problem. I know you referring to it meaning that you didn't have a real problem, but that is precisely the problem with depression. Since it is in your head, it's not like a disease where everyone can see the problems. Not to mention some people who are uneducated about depression still frown on those who have it, not understanding how real and debilitating it can truly be.

I would suggest making an appointment with a psychologist. A psychologist will be able to assess you to determine whether or not you are depressed and then tell you what your next step will be. There are many treatment options for depression.
