Lost a friend
NicoleSchaefer posted:
On June 18th of this year I lost a close friend. Ever since then I have been feeling tired all the time, and sad all the time. Im also have been keeping everything bottled up inside. I was wondering what I should do. Could this be depression caused by grief?

Dear Nicole,

This is still a very recent loss so it's understandable that you would be feeling depressed by it. That doesn't mean you have 'depression' though if you are concerned, please do see your doctor.

And start letting others in on how you are feeling. It's okay to get their support.

I am very sorry for your loss.

Thank you! And I will try to let others in.

You're very welcome, Nicole. And you are always welcome here too.
