Depression can manifest in various ways, and it affects individuals differently. Common symptoms include a persistent feeling of sadness, hopelessness, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and restlessness,  or a general lack of interest or pleasure in activities you once enjoyed. You may experience changes in your sleep patterns, such as difficulty falling asleep or oversleeping, as well as changes in appetite, leading to weight loss or gain.
