A few months ago, my dog died. We got him when I was in middle school, and he’s truly been my best friend throughout the years. Now that he’s gone, I’ve felt super sad and I just haven’t felt like doing much. My friends and family are worried about me, but I keep assuring them I’m just grieving the loss… even though I’m concerned it might be more severe than that. How do I know if how I’m feeling is normal or if I’m falling into a serious depression? How can I get better?
