• An empty shell. A broken bucket. Autopilot.

  • Deflated. Blank. Gray. Foggy.

  • Indifferent. Exhausted. Hopeless. And hollow.

They’re simple words that only begin to describe the complicated feelings of someone suffering from depression. Depression surpasses the sad or low feelings that everyone experiences from time to time. Being sad can pass with time, and you can return to the activities you enjoy. But depression, also known as major depression or persistent depressive disorder, lingers. It weighs you down with a blanket of indifference, disinterest, and detachment. It affects how you feel, think, act, respond, engage, and move through your daily life.

Even the most basic activities – eating, sleeping, working – require enormous amounts of energy when you’re depressed, and there are days that energy just isn’t available. So maybe you don’t eat, or sleep, or work, or engage. You wish you would. And you might be mad at yourself because you’re not doing all those things. But you just… can’t.


Depression is impartial. It can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, income, culture, education, or social standing. It may have genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. From the physical symptoms to mental fatigue, depression appears in many ways:

  • Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness.
  • Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters.
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies, or sports.
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low mood
  • Low energy
  • Pain without a clear cause
