My prefix is served
Eat if you may
The prefix of my prefix
is a prefix, per se

My infix is inside you
Within, it resides
The infix of my infix
can be seen from outside

My suffix is a number
Count to address
The suffix of my suffix
is a suffix, just guess!

The answer could be:

Dishearten.

My prefix is served
Eat if you may
The prefix of my prefix
is a prefix, per se

This could be Dish, and the prefix of dish would be 'dis', which is also a common prefix.

My infix is inside you
Within, it resides
The infix of my infix
can be seen from outside

This could be Heart, the organ, with the infix 'ear', which is an external organ, hence seen from outside.

My suffix is a number
Count to address
The suffix of my suffix
is a suffix, just guess!

This could be Ten, as in the number 10, which has suffix 'en', another common suffix.

This further reinforces the title, as the answer is melancholic or dismal mood.
