So I just found this:
Recent studies on depression report that folks diagnosed with depression actually laugh more, laugh louder, and laugh harder than people without depression. People with depression will also spend more time trying to make others laugh, telling jokes, and trying to lighten a mood than people who do not have depression. People with depression tended to be more caring partners, better friends and kinder people than those who were depression free. People with depression actually act the complete opposite of the way you’d think; this is largely why, when people do commit suicide, his or her (or whichever pronoun you like) family and friends “didn’t see it coming” and describe the lost soul as “always happy and smiling”.
So, along with the other symptoms to look out for, take notice of those things. If someone close to you shows all those symptoms, plus the lethargy, apathy, etc, reach out to them.
I think this also explains why I usally get great along with people who are depressed or/and have/had a hard life. I love you all and please stay strong.. you are amazing darling ♥♥♥♥
