Reann, welcome to HW. I have spoken to you in your other threads.

I am terribly sorry for your loss and can empathise. Yes your feelings of depression can be directly linked to grief and the grieving process. There is no time limit on grieving. It will eventually get better but the process is different for everyone.

Are the feelings you are having stopping you from leading a 'normal' life? Have you consulted a doctor re your depression? Its important to know this stuff so we can help you better.

Hello and I agree with the rest here.  I am so sorry for your loss.  When grief triggers depression, the sadness can be unrelenting and overwhelming.

I would like to encourage you to consider counseling to help you through this painful time. One on one counseling can help you understand your feelings as well as teach you skills to cope with your pain.

I wish you peace,
