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

At first, it makes you feel human because of the intensity, ferocity, and authenticity of the emotion.

Then, every day is another reason to never want to wake up
A wise man knows that he knows nothing

A mature man knows that he can be immature

A man suffering from depression feels nothing, which is the most intense feeling one can experience

You cant really explain depression....its different for all of us....is lyk a state of utter despair and sadness. A void that covers you in despair. Depression affects the way you think....its like being isolated inside yourself... you cant get out until its too late.
i cnt think of an example...

The common rational reaction to self-awareness.
Are you depressed for a very good reason, depressed for no good reason, or just depressed?

A clinical condition caused by an imbalance in the levels of Serotonin in the brain.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain which is responsible for feelings of wellbeing and contentment. A decline in the level of Serotonin present in the brain causes severe feelings of anxiousness, lethargy, tiredness and a prolonged sadness.

Depression is a lasting condition, and is not to be confused with being an emo wanker who sits around slashing up for attention.
Emos are milking the whole depression card. They're ruining the seriousness of the issue, much like they ruined checkers, skating and punk music.
If you know of somebody that is legitimately depressed, tell them to seek medical help.
