American Sign Language:  "depressed" "depression" "feeling blue" "feeling down"


Down as in "depressed."  Feeling down.  This sign bends the middle fingers forward at the large knuckle. It can but doesn't have to touch the body. Use a single straight down movement and an appropriately sad facial expression:

Note: If you are feeling depressed I've been told that going to a brightly lit store is a good way to cheer up. All the bright light helps your biochemistry to cause you to cheer up.
