Fatigue post sleep, headaches, mood swings, sensitive to noise, depression symptoms ?

Please can you give me advise as to why I am always tired after sleeping for 10 hrs a night. I suffer from headaches and am very moody all the time. I am very sensitive to noise and it s a problem when you have 4 children to deal with. I have seen many doctors in XXXXX and they all suggest I have depression . I am not convinced I love being out and meeting up with my friends. Have spoken to my husband and he can t believe they suggest that. What else could you suggest. I take vitamin b evening primrose I am 42 stay at home mom and very busy I can t stand feeling like this it s almost 2 years now

Dear Madam

The informational provided is insufficient to infer as depression. It is also not clear what do you mean by moody. If 10 hour sleep is not you typical sleep hour then try to adjust the hour of sleep as changing sleep pattern often results into such symptoms.

If you are suffering of persisting pervasive sadness or irritability with loss of interest or pleasure accompanied with weight loss or weight gain, insomnia or more sleep, slowness in activity,fatigue or loss of energy, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, diminished concentrate, ideation of self harm then most likely it is depression. If you feel that these symptoms is applicable in your case then antidepressant may be helpful.
Dysthymia is other condition in which depressive symptoms appears in mild severity not affecting much of your activity but mildly disturbing.

Some tips that may be helpful are- Cultivate supportive relationships(Turn to trusted friends and family members,Try to keep up with social activities even if you don’t feel like it), Challenge negative thinking (Think outside yourself,Allow yourself to be less than perfect,Socialize with positive people,Keep a “negative thought log"), Take care of yourself (Aim for 8 hours of sleep,Expose yourself to a little sunlight every day,Keep stress in check,Practice relaxation techniques),Get regular exercise, Eat a healthy, mood-boosting diet.
Hope you will recover soon.
