I am mostly digital, but sometimes I'll post an ink piece here to vary a little

I have been thinking about the etimology if the word "desespero" (despair in english).
Its is divided in two: de- without and -sperare to wait, derivated from spes: hope.
Thinking like that the one in despair should be the one without the patience or the hope, and yet we don't use this word with that intent, instead we use impatiend or hopeless (at least in my language, which would be impaciente and sem esperança respectively) despair, however, is normaly used to portray a situation with a lot of suffering (angustia, anguish) and that makes the word loses its sense, after all the one who enters the state of despair loses hope, but a hopeless one wouldn't suffer, since everything is already lost for him/her, yet, this one suffers and strugles to its objective, so now I ask, what is the word for despair then? What does the desperate one lacks or has i comparison to the others, is it just a lot of anguish or something else? What makes the desperate strugle when he/she has no hope?
