Do i have depression?

Recently, i have been feeling really empty. I feel like there's a black hole in stomach. I feel so tired and sleepy all the time. The activities that i used to enjoy can no longer satisfy me. I keep having this negative thought like"i want to sleep forever and never want to wake up again " or " if i die i won't have to suffer like this anymore." What should i do? Should i get myself diagnose by professional? But what confused me is that nothing bad has really happened to me but i keep feeling low, lifeless and depressed.

Good morning Meka21, I am so sorry you feel like this, and yes I would seek help from your GP as it could be a health problem that they can help with or at least rule out. Then they can start to help you, I would do this as soon as possible so that you can start to enjoy life again.

Let us know how you get on won't you as this is a very caring and supportive community and we help each other. Best wishes to you.

Hi Moka21 hope you feel better soon, try with exercices. physical activity does help our mind. and remember its your choice to stay in a situation of victim or get out.

I know exactly how you feel - even though i know that if i do push myself to do something physical i WILL feel better afterwards.

I am currently having CBT and they place a lot of emphasis on trying to plan to do activities and to write down what you plan to do. It does help. And when motivation is really bad - set the timer for literally 5 minutes and do something........anything....(washing up/knitting/.....whatever) for that 5 minute slot - again that does help and i often can carry on after the timer has gone off
