How is your sleeping? Do you wake up early and find it hard to get back to sleep?

It's just that early waking (and unable to get back to sleep) is a classic sign of depression.

Doesn't mean you're not if you don't, if you see what I mean.

I would get down to the GP and tell them how you are feeling.

Working evenings must be gruelling - I would be shattered if it was me.
