Hi there! I'm happy to help you with this question.
Depression usually effects several areas of your life. Sometimes it helps to imagine it like a big pie, and each slice of the pie is an area of your life that is affected by depression. For example, it often impacts how much you sleep (either more or less), it can impact your appetite (increase or decrease), you may lose interest in activities that you usually enjoy, you may want to isolate and avoid being with friends. People often describe depression as something that is always present, no matter what you are doing. It's also been described as feeling like you are wading through water that is knee deep.
Alternatively, sadness tends to be more situational and will come and go.
Does this make sense?
Is there anything else I can help with?
