Changes in eating patterns can indicate depression. When depression goes untreated, we can self-medicate with food, often to one extreme or another. Which is not healthy and can make it all worse.
Furthermore, not sleeping will only make your depression worse. Sleep deprivation can have more of an effect on one’s health than anyone else.
If you are struggling with eating and/or sleeping then you are definitely depressed and it might be time to get treated.
Feeling depressed all the time is not good and the longer it goes untreated the worse it can get.
Unfortunately, we hate to admit to being depressed because our loved ones, and society as a whole, tend to stigmatize those with depression.
So, ask yourself if you have any of the symptoms above. If you do, seek professional help immediately. Call your primary care provider and tell her exactly how you have been feeling, using this article as a reference if you like. Treating depression is easy. Living with it is not.
