Signs and Symptoms of Depression Depression, a mental illness known to cause extreme emotional pain, affects people of all ages. Often preventing individuals from leading happy, healthy lives, depression can impair a person's ability to enjoy life's simple pleasures due to the feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, worthlessness, and intense sadness that come with the disorder. Depression can also infringe on a person's ability to remember things, think clearly, concentrate, or make good choices. Aside from the warfare that depression can wage on a person's psyche, a number of physiological symptoms can occur if the disorder goes untreated. Decreased appetite, rapid weight gain or loss in a short period of time, insomnia or hypersomnia, and pain are often reported by sufferers of depression. When these symptoms combine with the psychological symptoms associated with depression, people may notice the individual losing interest in things once enjoyed, have difficulty fulfilling roles, missing school or work, or isolating him or herself from friends and loved ones.
