Default am i depressed?

i am starting to womder if i am depressed or anxious or just sressed. i usually can handle my stress w/ the occasional cry or yelling. but saturday i picked up this football guy my husband has and threw it across the room, breaking a picture in the process. i just stared at the wall where the picture was crying. and it had nothing to do with weight, just like in general and being overwhelmed and stressed and frustrated. i look at it now and think how dumb it is too get worked up over small, trivial things, but at the time i was very upset. i am trying to figure out how to keep from getting that stressed. i have been having anxiety type attackes more often in he past couple months where my heart seems to beat faster and my chest seems to tighten and i get so physically upset. i don't know if i need to be on zoloft or something like that or if it's just life and i am experiencing it. anyone else feel that way?

Amber,

It is possible you are suffereing from depression. It is also possible you are suffering from holiday overload. Real clinical depression is usually something that persists over at least six months.

Here are a couple of links that will help you research

If you suspect you might be, after reading the information.. please check with your doctor as she/he is the only one who can diagnose you.

Good Luck
