Symptom: Some people with fatigue and loss of pleasure from activities as part of their depression also lose their appetite. Can also be a sign that your depression is relapsing. Get help. Increasing activity may also increase your appetite. Try concentrating on positives in your life and list at least three things you are grateful for each day to help you stay positive.
