When Everything Makes You Mad

Posted on: August 17, 2016

If you are someone who is mad all the time or gets annoyed very easily, or know someone who is, it can be hard to believe that those feelings can indicate depression. However, they often do. Sometimes it is called “having a short fuse” or just being someone who easily “flies off the handle.” When someone acts like this, it can be hard for others to feel empathy because the person’s actions can be hurtful to others. However, irritability can actually be a symptom of depression.
