The worst emotion you could ever feel. Every day becomes a living hell and you wonder if you have a purpose on this earth and why you should even be alive anyway. Depression will cause you to be on the edge of tears every minute of the day, and you eventually just stop caring about everything. Relationships suffer, friendships end, and suddenly you feel alone and there's no one but depression to keep you company. Sometimes depression is mistaken for melodrama, and the person who you think is crying for attention is actually screaming on the inside. Depressed people wish they could end the agony, but can't because there aren't many alternatives.
Depression usually doesn't have just one cause. It's a whole load of little problems that pile up after an unspecific length of time(depending on the problems, and how long you've kept your feelings bottled up inside) and eventually grow to become unbearable. You feel trapped and you want out but there's no way out, and every single simple everyday task like waking up and going to school becomes futile in your mind.
Just as I was reading these definitions for the same word, there were tears rolling down my face. Looks like I've got depression again. This is pathetic.

Most difinitely NOT a mood; it is NOT something that one can get over by friends making them laugh. Depression is an illness just like diabetes or cancer that affects the mind and needs to be treated just as urgently. Can be fatal. It is a horribly unbearable feeling inside that does not go away.
Take a deep breath in, hold it, take another breath in. That pain that you feel is the start of depressive feelings. Now pretend you haven't slept in 4 weeks and your body hurts like you have a flu. That is sorta like what depression feels like

a horrible black hole with seemingly no escape as you get sucked in deeper. Death is like a gift that will never come and no matter how hard you try, you can't prove to everyone else that your not going to commit suicide.
