11 Warning signs of a depression relapse

I saw an interesting slideshow on the WebMd website.  The following are the 11 Warning Signs of Depression

1. Depressed mood

2. Breaking plans, withdrawing socially

3. Sleeping too much or too little

4. Irritability

5. Loss of interest in sex and other pleasures

6. Feeling worthless

7. Chronic aches and pains

8. Sudden weight gain or loss

9. Fatigue

10. Slowed-down thinking

11. Suicide thoughts

I plan to keep this information near my computer to remind me of the warning signs.

Now that depression has left and I am on good ground again I can see that there were signs all along the way down.  Because I did not know the signs I went right through them and hit bottom.  I had a relapse.  One of the worst in a very long time.

I recommend this slideshow to everyone.  The information is a valuable tool.

love to all

I finally accepted what people have been telling me. I am full of knowledge and wisdom and I am unforgettable. My word of encouragement since 2015 has been to let others know, despite the waves and ripples in our lives, Life is totally awesome, even with a mental illness. I believe my purpose is to encourage others, advocate for those around me who have not yet found their voice to advocate for themselves and educate those without a mental illness. If for one for minute someone laughs or smiles because of something I said, that is one moment they did not think about mental illness.
