Are you or someone you know suffering from depression? What are the symptoms associated with this problem? It is very important that we are aware of various symptoms so that we can something about it right from the very start. Early medical intervention can lessen the problem significantly and boost the chances for recovery at the soonest time. I am sharing here a published guide from the experts on symptoms of depression:

D = depressed mood
E = energy loss/fatigue
P = pleasure lost
R = retardation or excitation
E = eating changed-appetite/weight
S = sleep
S = suicidal thoughts
I = I'm a failure (loss of confidence)
O = only me to blame (guilt)
N = no concentration

Remember not to take depression lightly as it can be a big burden and can paralyzed all aspects of your life.
