Depression is a kind of illness related to the mind. A person is said to be feeling depressed when he/she is engulfed with sudden feelings of sadness, helplessness, guilt and hopelessness. The mood changes naturally, and also affects the physical and mental state of the mind. A person gains weight or loses weight, does not feel interested in anything around him/her and is generally irritable and prefers to be alone. This affects his relationships with his friends, family and co-workers.
