    For me... I knew I was sad. I knew I felt crappy, even if I didn't know the reason.

    When I was depressed.. I didn't know it until I look back on how I was then. I wasn't particularly noticable.. but *I* Definitely notice it now. It felt like a string of sad days.. I kept blaming this, or that, or saying I'm just moody, etc. I'd get irritated easily.. nothing worked.. it was an attitude I had adopted somehow. I felt like I was walking in the sand, while cussing at people walking on the sidewalk next to me.. I made excuses all the time--well there's already people on the sidewalk, I'd be in the way.. or the sidewalk is too hot and my feet are bare. I'm sick, or my back hurts, so they say I should walk on sand.. .. It wasn't until I noticed the only thing stopping me from walking on the side walk was myself and my lame excuses that I realized where I truly was.

    I thought this was a useful, um, illustration for making the distinction you're asking about.

    I'm probably becoming depressed, I ate almost nothing today except half a piece of chicken, 2 biscuits, a few fries, 5-6 chips with queso on them. I just have no appetite whatsoever. I ate because I needed to, not because i wanted to.

    Moving helps me. Walking or anything. I do dance tutorials from youtube and cheers me up fast. Yes, the cure must be taken consistently but its ok because sometimes can lose a couple pounds lol. Sorry you are blue, I like you. (or at least your posts) Perhaps this does not address thread theme, now that I re-read, but I will post anyway for support.

    Im getting better at catching myself when im falling thanks everyone. I used to be,like @kyuuei but ive learned to start recognizing when im not feeling quite right. A very useful skill for me since im prone to depression

    I have slight depression, so I know a lot of the signs.

    If you suffer any of the following:

    -Lack of energy
    -Lack of interest in the things that used to please you
    -Staying home from work/school/social events that you would normally attend
    -Abnormal sleep patterns
    -Abnormal eating patterns
    -Thoughts/attempts of death/suicide

    ...then you should probably get some checking out. However, if you can actually pinpoint a reason as to why you're feeling down, it could very well just be stress and sadness adding up to such a high point that you feel depressed. Chances are, if you feel you may be depressed, you should tell someone because there is a possibility that you may be. But the most important thing to remember is that everything is treatable!

    From what I have read depression is when being in the dumps last for more then a week or 2. I know personally these days I am floating along. I know what I want, I know why im depressed, its just a matter of reaching/finding/getting what I want. I have those in my life though that know how to pull me out and I do stuff on my own as well. I dont like it, but its just a part of where I am right now...and I am thankful for the people who I can just let everything out and just be the joking/laughing/supportive/caring/playful me while I work through this crap that causes the depressed side of me.

    Apparently I am different and handle things differently so I have no clue if this will help or not.
    Im out, its been fun

    To me theres a difference between "I'm getting worn down and need some rest and time alone to start feeling human again" and "i feel like I'm sinking and I know it's a bad thing but I hate myself too much to bother doing something about it"... Those are pretty much the two negative mood options to me the major difference between the two is the desire to do something about it
