My best friend passed away two months ago. I have been going over all five stages of grieving over and over. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. Over and over and over. I have talked to my general doctor about anti-depressants and he told me that I need more time to grieve, but I don't think that I should be this depressed and angry all the time. I can't work, I can hardly get out of bed sometimes, its affecting my marrige and my social life. I have never been medicated before but I feel like it would help. I don't know anything about anti-depressants either. I am just wondering if any of you have used medication to help cope with loss. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Help.
