Feeling down for a day or two is one thing, but if it lasts for a month, it needs to be addressed. If you often feel exhausted, depression can be misinterpreted for laziness. But when you’re also having trouble focusing, completing simple activities, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, or change in your appetite these are serious red flags. Depression can come in many different forms. You are not lazy, even though it may appear that way. If you experience any of these signs, don’t wait to seek help.
