Although frank reporting of symptoms has increased with increasing public acceptance of psychiatric information, depression continues to wear many masks. Insomnia, fatigue, constipation, loss of appetite, dryness of the mouth & vague aches & pains are its frequent disguises. Thoughts of suicide are serious warning signs & should not be considered lightly. Suicide frequently follows partial recovery from depression when the patient reaches a stage at which decision becomes possible.
