Do you find that sadness has overtaken you? Do you wonder if you will ever feel joy again?
Are you having trouble sleeping, or are you sleeping too much? Have you seen a change in your appetite? Are you easily agitated? Are you experiencing crying spells or difficulty concentrating? Is it hard to accomplish normal life tasks? Are you no longer enjoying activities that once brought you joy?
