Identify changes in your mood

Have you suffered from at least five of the following symptoms for two weeks or longer:

  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering
  • Dramatic decrease/increase in weight
  • Experiencing a sense of dread first thing in the morning
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, anxiety, irritability
  • Indecisiveness
  • Lack of interest and pleasure
  • Reduction in personal hygiene and looking after yourself
  • Sense of being without hope or purpose
  • Sleep disturbance-early morning waking or sleeping much  longer than usual
  • Thinking about ending your life
  • Tiredness in general or upon waking; loss of energy
  • Particularly low mood; becoming upset for no specific reason
  • Withdrawal from the world around you

If you answered YES, you don’t have to work through this alone.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

– M. Scott Peck
