Please read the statements listed below. Consider which statements, if any, describe a problem you experience almost every day with no current medical explanation.

- Not enjoying daily activities you used to like doing
- Changes in your appetite (hungry all the time or don’t feel like eating)
- Sleeping too much or too little
- Lack of energy, fatigued easily
- Feeling worthless or guilty
- Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
