  • Hey, Psyche2Goer, we hope you're doing well, and finding time for self-care.

  • Now let's begin.

  • Do you go through life and feel a lingering sadness that never seems to improve?

  • You're not alone.

  • Depression is a complicated condition, and effects you in different ways than you may think.

  • So with that said, here are six signs that you are subconsciously depressed.

  • Please note, the information in this video is not intended nor implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

  • All content contained in this video is for general information purposes only, and does not replace a consultation with your own doctor or mental health professional.

  • Let's begin.

  • Number one, you always feel tired.

  • When you wake up, are you finding yourself feeling drained?

  • Does this feeling seem to last, no matter how much sleep you get?

  • Depression comes with a number of physical effects that are often passed off as something else.

  • Constant exhaustion is a common physical side effect.

  • Even if you sleep a good number of hours each night, you can never seem to catch enough rest.

  • This makes it hard to function during the day.

  • Number two, you're easily irritated and angered.

  • Does it seem like everyone gets on your nerves?

  • Even if these people are well-meaning, you can't help but wish they'd go away.

  • It's not uncommon for depressed people to foster negative thoughts and feelings about the people around them.

  • While we all have those days where we prefer to keep away from others, if you're noticing that you're pushing people away more than normal, or if a friend is withdrawing from others, it can be a sign of something more.

  • Number three, you have a hard time with emotions.

  • How do you feel right now?

  • Are you able to describe which emotions you're experiencing?

  • Do you often have periods of time where you can't?

  • Psychiatrist Peter Sifneos coined the term alexithymia as being unable to describe how you feel.

  • For example, while you may notice that your heart is racing, a normal person would be able to tell if they're excited or nervous easily.

  • On the other hand, a person with alexithymia, wouldn't be able to distinguish if it was fear or excitement causing it.

  • Not knowing your emotions makes it extremely difficult to know where to begin in tackling them.

  • Number four, you don't eat, or you eat too much.

  • Have you developed different eating habits?

  • Do you find yourself forgetting to eat, or are you unable to stop eating?

  • You may develop chaotic eating habits as a way to cope with how you're feeling.

  • Overeating may be your only source of pleasure, causing you to lose sight of your physical health.

  • On the other hand, you may lose interest in food, and end up missing meals.

  • Different stressors in your life can throw off your sense of balance, which can also affect your eating habits.

  • Number five, others don't think you look like a depressed person.

  • Has anyone ever told you that you don't seem depressed?

  • You or they may be accustomed to the media's portrayal of what a depressed person looks like.

  • Someone who never leaves their room, doesn't dress well, and always has a miserable look.

  • While those are clear signs of the condition, depression doesn't always appear that way.

  • According to Psychotherapist Jodi Aman, depression affects all personalities, and can look very different from person to person.

  • People with depression can suffer in silence too.

  • These are people that can perform tasks towards their goals, and do their day to day tasks, but still have lost their spark.

  • Then number six, you find it hard to put a smile on your face, but you still do.

  • Do you try to mask yourself as a happy person, even if you don't feel that way deep inside?

  • Many people who experience depression conceal it behind a smile.

  • Depression can be quiet on the outside, but extremely painful inside for some, while others display their symptoms more outwardly.

  • Having an honest conversation with a mental health professional or someone you trust should be a top priority.

  • Even if you worry about burdening others, appearing weak, or feeling vulnerable, confronting and processing your emotions with others is a great first step to recovery.

  • It's difficult to deal with depression alone.

  • You may be struggling now, but there's a world out there of people cheering you on.

  • Confide with someone you trust, and talk to a trusted professional to get the help you need.
