10 signs that you are experiencing depression even without feeling sad
We all have a pattern on the head of a depressed man. We think there are always sad people, who constantly feel bad, sad, who cry and display despair at every moment. But that is not the reality.
The truth is that the symptoms of depression vary a lot, that is why one can post selfies over and over again on Instagram and at the same time be experiencing depressive moments.
The coronavirus pandemic has triggered this condition. But if you have never experienced it before, it can be difficult to identify it because you can confuse it with the feeling of sadness.
The Huffington Post consulted with several mental health experts to help highlight some of the signs that may indicate a state of depression - even when sadness does not appear.
