Symptom of depression?

Recently I have noticed that I am pretty sad, something like I am empty, nothing can't make me smile. In a few months I had some stressful situations that I have handled without showing any emotions. Could this be a begging of depression? What are the symptoms?

People who are depressed tend to think very negatively about themselves, the future and the world around them. It can be like seeing life through “gloomy specs”. • Everything is hopeless - nothing can change • I'm useless, worthless • It's all my fault • The world is a terrible place - everything goes wrong Common physical symptoms include • Tiredness, fatigue, lethargy • Difficulty concentrating or remembering • Sleep changes (sleep more or less) • Eating changes (eat more or less) • Lose interest in hobbies, activities, sex Behaviours Because of the tiredness, difficulty sleeping and eating, and negative style of thinking, we tend to do less and less. We stop doing the things we used to do and enjoy. It could get so bad that we can't even go to work, or do things at home. We want to stay in bed, or stay at home doing very little. We might isolate ourselves from friends and family. If you'd like to check whether you might be suffering from depression, follow the link to my Facebook Note: Beck Depression Inventory. This is a self-reporting stamdardised assessment tool and should not be regarded as a diagnosis. If you have any concerns regarding the results, I would strongly advise you to consult your doctor.
