Depression is a general feeling of sadness, worthlessness, and chronic fatigue. Depression makes the sufferer feel as though they are alone in the world and that nothing they can ever do is good enough.
The person may feel utterly disjointed from their own life and unable to assimilate into social situations, even with their spouse or family members.
Depression can even cause a person to feel a deep-seated loathing for themselves, regardless of how successful they are or how bright their future is.
This feeling can even drive an individual to have thoughts of suicide and cultivate a belief that their loved ones would be better off without them.
The symptoms of Depression are internal and can even be hidden from those closest to the sufferer.
Here are the most common symptoms:
Significant Weight Loss or Weight Gain
Change in Sleeping Habits
Loss of Interest in Everything
Feelings of Worthlessness
Feelings of Guilt
Becoming Irritated Easily
Thoughts of Suicide
