The initial period after Benedict XVI’s resignation was difficult for him, writes Peter Seewald in Benedikt XVI. Ein Leben (Mai 2020).
Archbishop Georg Gänswein calls this “a deep state of depression.”
Ratzinger barely spoke or ate, and was complaining of fatigue.

"depression is hard to proof for an amateur..." @Rafał_Ordure Apparently grammar offers amateur conspiracy experts equal challenges. Depression is readily diagnosed, too. Acedia is spiritual apathy which does not require depression. Benedict has repeatedly said his resignation was of his own free will. So you're implying Benedict is a liar.
