Depression is a natural phase of divorce. If the depression becomes severe, you are unable to sleep, dramatic weight loss\gain, job is in jeopardy, then go to a doctor for a medication evaluation. If you are feeling mildly or moderately depressed, some crying, some loss of sleep and moderate weight change, then go out and join a club, work out physically or mentally but move forward. Mild to moderate depression is expected but must be addressed so that it does not become severe.
