In brief: No

The hallmark of depression is a diminished ability to enjoy things that should be enjoyable.
If that occurs, the individual needs to see their physician. The blues are typically not associated with this symptom. However, "blues" that persist for more than 2 weeks should be evaluated by your doctor.
