I look forward to the day when medicine
has finally correlated the physical signs
with the behavioural symptoms of depression.
Such correlations now exist in medical
texts for diseases such as diabetes,
hypothyroidism, meningitis, brain tumour,
and an endless list of neurological and
hormonal disorders. In these cases, though
there are behavioural parallels to the
disease, doctors do not become bamboozled
by the number of synonyms describing them.
Nor do they rely on the numerous behavioural symptoms alone and the Thesaurus to diagnose
