That is certainly: Possible. Your dr can assess for mood disorder ; underlying medical conditions that may be causing symptoms. Talking therapy (cognitive behavioral therapy or insight oriented psychotherapy) is important for lasting change. Psychiatric meds may be indicated. Spend time w people. Use your support system. Get out. Don’t stagnate at home. Get at least 8 hrs of sleep/ night ; eat healthfully.
