Yes: It is possible to have residual symptoms of depression without actually having the emotion of depression anymore. I would recommend that you return to your treating doctor for evaluation so that this doesn't develop into a chronic lingering problem or so that you don't relapse into full depression again. Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.
