Depression shows up in many different ways. People often lose interest in favorite
activities, have sleep problems, gain or lose weight, feel irritable or angry, or are
in physical pain for unexplained reasons. Feeling guilty, anxious, or having
difficulty concentrating are also common signs of depression. Fortunately, there are
many ways to treat depression, and more than 80% of people treated for depression
improve within a year.and
You answered "yes" to the majority of these questions which might indicate bipolar
disorder. If you've experienced three or more of these unusual behaviors at the same
time, and if these phases caused you any significant problems at work, home, or with
your finances, you should consider talking to a mental health professional about
bipolar disorder. Getting a professional evaluation is the first step in getting
help.So should I take this seriously. Or just, I don't know... what do you think?
