In brief: Sadness

The symptoms are the same for recurrence as for depression: sadness, helplessness or hopelessness, suicide thoughts, or thoughts of death, irritability, or feeling like you're in a hole.
Also, people will frequently have a change in their sleep, too much, or not enough, and want to isolate themselves, as well as finding less joy in pleasurable things and loss of sex drive.
