In brief: Good question

Clinically depressed people have described a flatness; however, never forget how severe the ''sad'' feeling that is adjacent.
H'mm, how bad? From crying for no apparent reason to destroying your capacity to sense any reason to live. This is a potentially fatal disease; most macabre is the instrument of death-the person. Suicide!
