Symptoms of depression

Found this online as symptoms of depression. If I was to be honest, I think all of them apart from one or two apply to me 😐 although I don’t think this is a new thing. I think I have had these feelings present for the last two/three years. Maybe I’ve just lived in denial. Or maybe I just hid them from everyone….including myself
