Feeling Unhappy, Dont Know if its Depression?

I have always been an unhappy person, constantly worrying about something. Lately it seems worse, especially when Im hungover. Last night when I came home drunk, I cried myself to sleep for no reason..

I don't feel that tired or anything and I don't know if this constitutes depression?

Im not very sad, could it still be depression?

There is such a thing as mild to moderate major depression, I know because I was mistakenly diagnosed with it before when I actually have had an entirely different mental illness.  It would depend on things like if you've lost interest in activities you once enjoyed or your eating habits changed or you can't enjoy things anymore or things like that.  There is also biological and situational depression which depends on whether you are getting this way for no apparent reason or if something is happening or has happened in your life to cause it.

I just feel bored with everything. I would laugh if I heard a joke, but I rarely smile or feel happy about life anymore.

Maybe you should talk to a psychologist or therapist about your concerns and if they think you need a referral to a psychiatrist you can get situated in with one for your problems.
