Rochele asked 10 years ago

I am a 23 year old female who lately has been having feelings of sadness. I feel tired during the day and at night I cant sleep. Instead my mind is consumed of awful thoughts about myself. I also tend to cry. I do not even know where these feelings are coming from. Is this loneliness or depression?
