Depression often occurs for no apparent reason which is why it is different from sadness or grief. Untreated depression can continue indefinitely. Symptoms include persistent sadness, pessimism, feelings of guilt, loss of interest, fatigue, suicidal thoughts, etc. Women are twice as prone to depression as men but men are more likely to commit suicide. Medication is available for the condition.
