In brief: Loss & Depression

Share what you're going through with people you love and trust.
Ask for the support you need. Try to keep up with social activities -- even if you don't feel like it. Being around others can help you feel less depressed. Exercise regularly. Join a depression support group -- many large churches have these, as well as elsewhere in most communities. Psychiatrists and therapists can help too.
