Depression can range from having mild, moderate to severe symptoms. It can also present as sudden onset or gradually develop over a long period - in other words chronic.
Mild depression can make you feel low, as though everything is harder to do, you may have trouble making decisions. Many people feel that life has stopped being fun and lost their enjoyment in everyday things. Some people complain of difficulty sleeping or don't feel rested after sleep. Mild depression symptoms can last up to 2 weeks.
