Depression is not just lowered mood. Depression can affect all aspects of your life your sleeping, eating, energy levels, and thoughts. Depression is primarily driven by looping, negative, self-critical thoughts that make you believe that you are completely stuck. Depression related thoughts cause people to focus on the hopeless aspects of life. Bodily changes can include intense lowered mood, inability to feel pleasure, difficulties eating, trouble sleeping, and feelings of worthlessness/guilt. Depression symptoms can make it seem like there is no connection, meaning or pleasure in living.
