Some depression simply can’t be missed, the sort that traps sufferers in a sucking hole of sadness so deep that they don’t believe it’s possible to escape.
Depression in this context is typified by feelings of sadness and emptiness, low energy and excessive sleep, and waves of irritability and anxiety.
