-Loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities.


-Slowed or inefficient thinking with poor concentration, leading to difficulties sorting out problems or making plans or decisions.

-Thoughts that you would be better off dead or of harming yourself in some way.


Physical Symptoms:


-Loss of appetite with excessive loss of weight.


-Loss of interest in sex.


-Loss of energy, even when not physically active.
