Grief into Depression

Hi just wondering if anyone has had their grief turn into depression that doesn't lift, still feel grief but depression seems to be the main feeling now. Every morning starts the same in masses of tears. Is it because of the type of person I am, an anxious, ocd person always. Do anxious people have worst reaction to anything happening. I don't know what to do had enough now.

I was tempted to share my thoughts with you by asking if there was any delay after your loss before you started grieving? Or any or many unresolved issues? But with hindsight, I think your question could best be answered by those more qualified.

If you are not receiving any counseling then maybe someone like cruse bereavement care on 0808 808 1677 may be able to put your mind to rest. They have been helpful to me during my grieving process.

Family have been little help other than to tell me to be "strong". As though you are a weak person if you are feeling so bad. Think I must get help now as don't seem any better if anything worse so I will try get professional help. Thank you.

My grief definitely turned into depression. Grief does have sadness, but when it becomes overwhelming, every moment, or turns to complete numbness and not living, then it is time to see a professional and for me to turn to spiritual strength.

I have some resources if you are interested in dealing with depression as a Christian. It is so hard when others expect you to be a certain way, but it is so healthy to take off the mask and allow yourself to walk the path to healing.

I pray for divine connections in your journey to a healthy mind again. That your heart and mind line up with hope and that you can separate the loss from the everyday heart condition. I do understand and there is hope after the loss!
