Lacking. Everything seems quite lackluster, the most wonderful of things fall short of your expectations.

Word: Hollow.

I've only been really depressed three times in my life. It felt kind of like a pit inside of me weighing me down, like the other guy said. It made me completely lethargic and apathetic. However, I don't let myself get depressed anymore There are too many amazing parts about life to let the bad things get you down

Depression feels like you're being suffocated by your own mind. And then you just watch.

To me it feels like doing things isn't rewarding and it discourages progress in a vicious cycle.

It feels like a total lack of energy. I remember having no will to do anything. I barely had the energy to get out of bed.

Melancholy bliss. After a while you realize all of life and the world is permeated with beautiful sorrow.

There's a large difference between depression and sadness. I know them both well and deeply.

Sadness and sorrow are painful things, they can drive negative feelings deep into your soul. The feeling of being crushed, hopelessness and unending melancholy come to mind.

But depression is different in that you don't feel much of anything. Extreme apathy sets in and you tend to lose your energy to do anything. Things like eating seem too difficult to do, or getting out of bed. You even lose interest in things like music, anime, games, friends. You'd kill to feel sorrowful just so that you could feel something.

Sadness is the pain of circumstances pressing in. Depression is your soul shutting down.

Like many others, this is what the wost of it was for me. Just the feeling that absolutely nothing matters and it's just the same if you sleep all day and do nothing. Even eating is just naah, don't feel like it. Time is the only thing that keeps things moving since there's no way to stop that without doing something, even suicide requires effort and most of the time there just is no energy or will for effort.

Alone. Not lonely, just alone. And awfully loud.

Yeah, like most are saying it really depends from person to person and how strong a person is mentally. For me depression is a state in which my world turns gray, a train of negative of thoughts always running thru my mind. Things that once made me happy and laugh just feel really dull and i stop enjoying those things. An Overwhelming alone feeling randomly pops up, feeling like you are completely alone in this world and that no one gives a shit about you.
