Has life lost its meaning? Those with major depression might feel a sense of hopelessness, low self-worth, and even begin to lose their appetite.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker Rachel Dubrow told The Cheat Sheet that this type of depression often presents with several signs and symptoms. “A person is clinically depressed when the lack of interest and/or depressed mood is present along with other symptoms, such as insomnia, gaining or losing weight without trying to do so, irritability, feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, and/or worthlessness, having difficulty concentrating, and feeling suicidal. A person can have varying levels of depression, which range in severity from mild to moderate to severe,” said Dubrow.
