    Depression and anxiety disorder run in my family. I lost my dad and brother last two years ago, and struggled coping. I got really sick and depressed ect. I got married and my husband has completely changed my life. For the first time, I have experienced genuine happiness and contentment. My mom passed away June 7th of this year. I'm not sure what a wise next step should be. Should I preemptively see a doctor given my past with depression? I don't want her loss to have the same effect on me as my dad and brothers did.

    Perhaps see a grief counselor if you still are concerned. A good one will be able to help you deal with your loss.
