Is constant irritability a sign of depression?

Asked by Sunshinegirl11 (1107points) January 12th, 2018 from iPhone

Depression runs in my family.

I’m usually such a happy person, always smiling and laughing. These last few weeks though it feels as if something snapped off in my brain.

I am constantly irritable. I’ve probably picked a fight with my mom more these last few weeks than I ever have in my entire life. I never have motivation to do anything, which is weird because I’m usually a super motivated/goal oriented person. I’ve been sleeping in late, literally cannot get up for my alarm. I just feel stuck and so alone. I’ve destroyed my relationship with my mom.

I haven’t gone through some traumatic life event or anything, it’s all just out of no where.

I’m thinking about seeing a therapist. I found one just need to set up an appointment. But since depression runs in my family, should I see a psychiatrist instead?

Thanks for the help
