What is depression and what are the symptoms?
The Mayo Clinic said: “Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest.
“It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.
“Depression may require long-term treatment. But don’t get discouraged.
“Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychotherapy or both.
“Symptoms of depression could include feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness, angry outbursts, irritability, frustration, even over small matters, loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, sleep disturbances, tiredness, reduced appetite or weight gain, anxiety, agitation or restlessness.”
