Warning Signs of Depression

Depression is nothing but a mental illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts. "Depression", this term is often used to describe emotional reactions. These mental and physical feelings seem to follow them day and night, appear to have no end. Depression is alleviated by happy events or good news. Many people say that it is a sign of weakness.
