These are the signs of depression that should never be ignored. It’s important to remember that depression is a brain illness that can be fatal if it’s not treated properly. Every year, depression affects more than 16 million Americans. Mental health is starting to get the recognition that it deserves, but there is still more work to be done. According to statistics, only 35.3% of Americans who are suffering from depression seek help. This is a major concern because it is extremely tough to deal with depression on your own.

Summary:
Here are the top habits someone with depression will develop and go through.

1. Wanting to be alone: If you are suffering from depression, you probably don’t like leaving your house/room. You want to be alone with your thoughts and in most cases want to feel sorry for yourself without anyone bothering you.

Many people who suffer from depression just want to spend their time alone. They may completely give up on communicating with others. They will isolate themselves and give up on a daily routine. They may ignore calls, stop showing up to work, stop going to school, stop paying bills, the list goes on.

2. Issues with sleeping: People who are depressed tend to have trouble sleeping. Not only does this affect their physical well being, but it also significantly affects their mental well being. People who are depressed will pretend that they’re sleeping so no one will bother them, but they end up staying up all night and struggle to fall asleep because their mind is constantly racing with negative thoughts.

3. Lack of energy: Someone who suffers from depression will constantly cancel plans and appointments. They don’t have the energy or the desire to do anything. They just want to be left alone. Those suffering from depression may also sleep on the couch and binge watch television shows. Depression can cause people to become lazy, which translates into procrastination. They will avoid chores and stop taking care of their appearance.

Because people with depression lack energy, they may begin to avoid doing regular daily tasks like cooking. There is nothing tastier than a home cooked meal, but because depression is extremely draining, people suffering from it will often buy takeout because they lack the energy and motivation to cook. In addition to this, people who suffer from depression sometimes do not even enjoy the taste of food, says WebMD. This doesn’t mean that the food tastes bad; it means that they’re so stressed about so many issues that they can’t enjoy their food. They may also start eating less or lose their appetite altogether.

4. Distractions: People who are depressed tend to look for distractions to help keep their minds occupied. This can range from listening to music, to cleaning, to even exercising. It’s never a bad thing to be addicted to cleaning. Some people suffering from depression will clean anything and everything, says WebMD. It’s a good distraction and helps them focus on something more positive instead of something negative.

Running also helps many people dealing with depression. It gives them a sense of accomplishment, which is one of the main symptoms of depression - that they don’t feel that they have accomplished anything in life. Music can also be a telltale sign of someone’s mood. Someone suffering from depression may enjoy old rock and roll, but the second they develop a depressive episode, they may enjoy listening to something more soft and relatable to their situation.

5. Bad habits: Although some distractions can be good for a depressed person, there are also certain distractions which can lead to unhealthy habits. One example is picking skin until marks are left. Some people get satisfaction when they hurt themselves, which needs to be dealt with immediately before it becomes life-threatening. Some people will also suffer from other disorders that contribute to their depression. For example, some people will also suffer from trichotillomania, which is the disorder where the person will keep pulling their hair. After they pull it out, they will get a sense of relief.
