A nap that depressed people take when they can't deal with the emotional pain they feel. They try to shut out everything they feel by having the illusion that they are dead. When they are asleep, they don't have to feel, think, or cry about anything. It's a way to numb your pain without drugs. A depression nap is the closest thing to death. It usually calms people down or prevents them from suicide.
