People with depression often report alterations in their experience of time, a common complaint being that time has slowed down or stopped.

In addition, I suggest that current diagnostic categories such as "major depression" are insensitive to the differences between these changes. I conclude by briefly considering whether the kinds of temporal experience associated with depression are specific to depression
