Depression tends to attack women twice as more as men, perhaps because they are usually sensitive and emotional and don’t afford much pain.

A depressed woman has no interest in her favorite activities, she no longer enjoys life pleasures.
She blames herself all the time and feels guilty about everything, which may lead her to attempt to commit suicide.
