Impossible to tell, but it certainly _could_ be depression. It could also be the flu. Or overwork. Or malnutrition. Or a whole host of other things. It's very stressful to have a family member that's dying, she may feel hopeless. I hope she's showed some signs of life since then. Does she seem unusually sad, or does she have other symptoms?
