2. Symptoms of Major Depression

Those with SAD experience symptoms associated with major depressive disorders. Feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness are common, with thoughts of suicide frequently appearing as well. Many people lose interest in activities that interested them previously and may avoid social interactions. Some people may feel as though they lack the energy to perform seemingly easy tasks, which can lead to an increased feeling of failure.
