Do I Have Depression?


Thank you Web MD.

“Do you have symptoms of clinical depression? Sure, most of us feel sad, lonely, or depressed at times. And feeling depressed is a normal reaction to loss, life’s struggles, or an injured self-esteem. But when these feelings become overwhelming and last for long periods of time, they can keep you from leading a normal, active life. That’s when it’s time to seek medical help.”

“According to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of depression may include the following:

  • difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
  • fatigue and decreased energy
  • feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
  • feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
  • insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
  • irritability, restlessness
  • loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
  • overeating or appetite loss
  • persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment
  • persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings
  • thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts”

Well let’s see…how many symptoms of depression do I have…10 out of 11. Ironically the only symptom I do not have is thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts…I’ve only accepted that death is inevitable.

And the award for making Courtney’s life terrible and causing the depression goes to………(dramatic pause) GARY MORTENSON, supposed father and the person that is so phobic of change! Whoo-oo. Go dad.

No I can’t just blame my dad. I chose all of this and I am dealing with the consequences. Yea for me being logical. (Sarcasm!)
