  • Prolonged loss of interest in home, work and personal appearance
  • Loss of interest in sexual activity
  • Sudden changes or excesses in eating or sleeping habits
  • Frequent, uncontrollable crying
  • Lingering, unfocused nervousness or grouchiness
  • Persistent feelings of hopelessness and futility
