Some thoughts...: There are many signs that may suggest depression, such as: feelings of sadness or hopelessness, angry outbursts or irritability, loss of interest in normal activities, sleep disturbances, tiredness or a lack of energy, either weight gain or weight loss due to appetite changes, anxiety or restlessness, slowed thinking, feeling worthless, etc... Seeing one's primary care doctor is a good start.

INSOMNIA: Getting a good night's sleep is very important for physical and mental health. Insomnia might be due to several different reasons. First have a complete physical exam by a Dr. to rule out an underlying biological problem. If no problem consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy help & in addition you may need a Psychiatrist for medication. You may need a referral to a sleep study.
