There are certainly similarities within a depression yet it also unique to each of us, with different symptoms at different levels.

I've learned to take an inventory of my life to identify a real issue that would create feelings of sadness, loneliness, etc.. Sometimes what's causing negative feelings can be close, far away or any measure of time and not be obvious until it is written down and looked at. If I discover an issue and fix it and the negative feelings go away it's not depression it's just life.

PsycCentral has a test meant to help people identify symptoms of mental illness. Try this link Depression Test - Do You Have Depression?

I hope it's a life issue that you can fix quickly and have a happy life.
