Am I Depressed?

I'm a bit worried about something that I feel has been bothering me lately. I'm 19 yrs old. And after a death of a close friend six months ago, I'm worried and I don't feel the same. Before the death of my friend, I had all sorts of feelings that I felt. If I was happy I felt happy, if I was sad I felt sad. But after my friend's death, I feel nothing. Now when I want to feel happy, I feel nothing, when I want to feel sad, once again I feel nothing. I don't feel down or depressed. I just don't feel the same. Could I be Depressed?

Re: Am I Depressed?

It is possible that you are depressed because you are still grieving for your friend. Grief can be like this, it is so big that our emotions basically shut down to spare us the pain. It may be part of your process through this. Give it a little more time and hopefully you will recover. The death of a person we love is ample cause for depression like this. Take care, Sera.

Are you depressed?......sure you lost a close friend.

Do you have depression? Not likely. You are going thru the grieving process, give it time.
