Dear friend, There are many

Dear friend,

There are many different symptoms of depression to be aware of if you think you have major depressive disorder. Symptoms include sad mood, which means feeling down or gloomy, and having thoughts about failure, guilt or even death. Other symptoms are physical, such as fatigue, lack of energy, and loss of motivation. If you are having these types of symptoms you may have major depressive disorder. There are several tests you can take that will tell you if you have depression and just how depressed you are. Here is one I can recommend: http://www.ocdhope.com/ocd-depression.php. Take the test and see how you do. If you think you might be depressed you should talk with someone, such as a school counselor, your parents or a doctor.

Best of luck,
Dr. Williams
