Depression is a commonly misused term, therefore the general population should be made aware of the signs and symptoms of depression, to avoid suffering unnecessarily from the mental illness. Symptoms of depression include a persistent sad mood, loss of interest, loss of pleasure in usual pleasurable activities, disinterest in work, poor concentration, loss of appetite, insomnia or hypersomnia, loss of libido, for two weeks or more. The sufferer may also direct their psychiatric suffering as bodily symptoms, resulting in pain, aches, weakness, fatigue, or diarrhea. Depression can be triggered by an event, or can present without a trigger, and in its worst form can result in the sufferer committing suicide.
