  • Depression symptoms?

    Sorry that you’re having these symptoms . Sleep is essential for everyone and especially so for children and adolescents. Lack of sleep can be caused by many conditions. I will suggest you talk to your parents about your symptoms and have them get an appointment with your pediatrician to further explore your symptoms. Your pediatrician will either treat your condition or make the appropriate referrals if needed. Your parents might also want to make an appointment for you with a child and adolescent psychiatrist if you’re feeling down to get you evaluated. Wishing you good health. READ MORE
