How do you know if you have Depression?

Lately everything bothers me, right from dealing with people out in public, and even watching TV. I find myself analyzing everything around me. I find people are fake, their polite to your face and talk about you behind your back. Even commercials on TV bother me, why are things priced $499.99, in my way of thinking, that's 500 bucks, please don't insult me by making me think it's cheaper because 4 is lower than 5. I don't think people care about each other, they just pretend to because that's the way it should be. I believe life itself is just one big joke and insult. Today while standing in line at K-mart, everyone was asked if they would like to donate to St Judes Hospital to help kids fighting cancer, not one person did, that bothers me so much. Why are people self serving with little regard for others? Where did we take a wrong turn in life! My mind wonders in crazy places, I can picture someone driving a $50,000 car and not donating 5 bucks to help kids dying of cancer, how is that even humanly imaginable? I don't know if I have depression or just a warped way of thinking, do any of you think this way at all? I do seem to get more depressed around the holidays but I think this way all the time lately. Anyone care to share their thoughts?

I suffer from depression. I can't get out of bed until after noon. I get up maybe get something small to eat and go right back to bed. People around here are mostly un friendly. And Cheap. It's not just you who see it. Earlier this year Utica/Rome was number 11 on the unhappiest places to live!!!!!!!!!!

I hear you. You are getting older and wiser. You are starting to realize how the world works! Try not to dwell on things you cannot change. Spend time with people who do care. Focus on whatever good you see. Even if its only a sunny day, or a little kid, or a puppy!! If you concentrate on all the crap that happens you will be overwhelmed. Don't watch the news or read the paper....except for the funnies! Just try and be as good a person as you can be and let that motivate you to face each day. Good luck and God bless you.

Happiness is an inside job. Be the best person you can be. Do t worry about what other people think. It's hard to do, but once you get over that hurdle life becomes so much more enjoyable and things that you don't like don't bother you as much.

Regarding the donation point in your post... Everyone cannot donate money to every charity. Also, smart people perform some research to determine what charities actually provide the monies they collect to the people who really need it. You would be surprised to find out some charities provide pennies on every dollar collected to those in need. Before blindly giving to every charity take a look at how good the charity is at helping others. Check this out:

Utica is poor, always overcast and gray, people are bozos, restaurants generally suck, no jobs... of course we're depressed. I'm moving to Clinton, where life is worth living.

youll always find bullies in life. Here is an example. Sad thing is most people disagree and dislike him/her but the way for this person to cope is by putting others down.
