In brief: Depression

Depression has a wide range of symptoms from sadness, decreased interest/loss of pleasure in daily activities, sleep or weight changes, feelings of worthlessness, fatigue, loss of energy.
The main distinguishing factor for major depression is if it significantly impacts your daily life (and generally has lasted > 2 weeks). If you're experiencing these symptoms, talk your doctor. Hope that helps!
