  • Aches and pains, such as headaches and stomach aches, without an obvious cause
  • Avoiding friends and social activities
  • Big mood swings
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Changes in sleeping habits
  • Difficulty thinking, remembering or making decisions
  • Feeling sad, hopeless, guilty or worthless
  • Feeling irritable, restless, frustrated or discouraged
  • Loss of interest and enjoyment in activities
  • Low energy or feeling tired all the time
  • Misuse of alcohol or drugs, including prescription painkillers
  • Seeing or hearing things that aren’t there
