In the early stages of depression, people avoid the problem by saying that it is only a bad day, blaming the rainy weather, hard day at work or an argument with a friend. Performing any action, lack of appetite and sleeping problems can all be an early sign. Without seeking help early, you risk gaining other mental health issues.
Be aware of the early signs such as losing the ability of concentration while doing simple actions, losing interest in favourite hobbies and decreased sexual appetite. Since the person cannot focus on finishing tasks and goals it leads to more frustration and irritability. They are not interested in meeting friends and family, they are not attending to classes or events they usually find fun, because they feel irritated by happy, smiling, optimistic people. They begin to hide and spend most of their times alone.
If you recognise at least 3 symptoms do not hesitate to ask for professional help, depression is an illness and it can be cured easier if its caught in an early stage.
