depressed?
Hi all. I have written numerous times on this site and I dont know what is wrong with me. My b/friend broke up with me about a week ago and I just cant seem to stop thinking about it. I wasnt that happy in the relationship, so why am I like this? I sleep all the time, can focus on anything, cant eat (I have lost 5kg in a week) and not interested in anybody else. Am I depressed? Do I need medication?

For a week after a meaningful break=up, that's about par for the course, isn't it ? And even if not happy in that relationship, we don't enjoy breaking habits, even bad habits. Medication may well NOT be what you need, but maybe a spot of counselling, best of all after a consultation with a shrink, for a proper assessment.
