2. Personality Change
You might not realize it yourself, but one of the first symptoms of depression is that you will experience some kind of obvious change in your mood and personality – other people around you might comment that this is not the you that they have come to know, and while it’s not great to hear that from anyone that you know, you should take note of it if it corresponds to the fact that you have been feeling different emotionally lately.
Personality and mood changes are very common – and the changes are more often than not leaning towards suddenly being depressed and sad when you were otherwise a normally upbeat person. This is an emotional change that you will almost immediately notice in yourself; others will notice it too, and combined with some of the symptoms on this list it can mean that you suffer from serious depression – and you might not even have realized it.
