    In a nutshell, when you're having trouble coping, getting along in daily life. If you mean anxiety or depression, Signs of an anxiety disorder below. A depression screening test online - CESD R.

    Treatment usually begins by seeing the GP, who can give you a referral. I mention referral because just a bottle of pills is not a very good approach. The things you'd want to tell the doctor are how you feel at different times of day, any symptoms you might have such as change in appetite or sleep, and things in your life affecting how you feel. 

    If you're depressed, I can't tell you exactly what you need. There's no one size fits all solution. I can tell you though that there are healthy lifestyle choices that can enhance the effects of the standard treatments with office visits. You're welcome to click on my name and read.

    Regardless of the signs, individuals go to therapy because they want help in changing the way they think, feel, and behave because their current ways are not working for them anymore, and they are dissatisfied with their life.

    When you are sarcastic to loved ones, punch a cockalorum narcissist in the groin, binge watch Friends and daytime talk shows naked, kick the dog and kiss the donkey, yell abuse at pretty young girls and old slags in public, drink alcohol every day, smoke weed and eat pork, speak in tongues, let JWs or Mormon missionaries inside your place, drive people to the local tip, smash plates at the supermarket, touch the gay neighbor's cockatoo, and stop feeding your cat after a stressful day at work.

    If it were me advising a friend or family member, I'd suggest it's when your problem is interfering with your day to day life.

    It impacts you at work.

    It causes your romantic relationships to suffer or prevents them from happening, or ends them.

    It causes tension within your family or household.

    It keeps you from making or keeping friends.

    It's the reason you hide from the world, staying home too much.

    It means you don't take care of yourself or the place where you live.

    You're really unhappy, or anxious, or angry...
