She makes her argument with pointed logic and exemplary lucidity.

In a rare moment of lucidity, the senator sided with his political enemies for the good of the country.

4. sadness; gloom; dejection.

5. Psychiatry. a condition of general emotional dejection and withdrawal;sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason.

Compare clinical depression.
6. dullness or inactivity, as of trade.
7. Economics. a period during which business, employment, and stock-market values decline severely or remain at a very low level of activity.
My mother suffer from depression. The depression triggered when we start having financial problems and it gets worst when she was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis (an incurable disease that change your whole life; from what you eat to simple activities that you can’t do anymore). She never smoked and never abuse alcohol so the condition of pancreatitis was gallstones. She had surgery to remove the gall and she expected to be back to normal.
There are things at our apartment that have to be fixed but it is too expensive. After this disease she see herself unable to get a job anymore because she don’t have energy and strength to work, her body simple can’t do any effort.
So one of the main causes of depression for most of the people is losing their independency and being financially stable.
