Understand trigger: It would be important to know if these feelings/symptoms are new or chronic. If relatively new, a consultation with a therapist would help determine the trigger for these feelings. A current loss of a significant other? The anniversary of the death of a loved one? A significant birthday? The point is to know what this depression is related to.
