Hi all, I'm sorry and embarrassed to say that I am not sure if I have depression. I have been feeling in a "funk" for the past few months, especially after finding out my husband has had an affair. I am trying everyday to keep positive, but I am at a point where no matter how hard I try to think positive I can't shake this feeling of sadness,anxiety and anger. I don't want to do anything, I have no energy, and is extremely irritable. So could anyone help me understand the "solid" signs of depression? My doctor prescribed sertraline for me so quickly, not even getting my whole story, but I'm a bit apprehensive to get on the medication... please lend an advice.
