If your loss is death because of speration.
Here's my take.
You surround yourself with the word and you keep reading keep trusting keep asking keep praying, keep believing. get angry if you need to, get to a far place or a car and scream if needs be, cry out load if you have to
Talk to God...as a person ask him questions tell him your story,
BUT make sure you take time to listen to the calm still small voice that will recite Gods comforting word back into your soul
and never stop trusting God for you healing and soon you will see the sunshine after the storm and the peace that keeps the soul knowing you never gave up on God but also he will show you in his word how he never gives up on youXX

It is common to feel depressed or to feel a loss when the person that you love is no longer living with you. But they will still be in your heart and in your memories, cherish them. Remember the good times that you both have had together, and continue on with your day to day living. Sometimes we are in the low valley, and other times we are smooth sailing, and yet at other times we may be upon the mountain top. We can not always be lifted and dancing upon the mountain top and always be happy, nor can our lives always be smooth sailing without any turbulance, but we must all experience the good and the bad that comes into our lives. Weeping may last for a night, but the wonders contained in another brand new day opens up for us in the morning.

Cluny: I don't totally comprehend the HOW of my mother's bipolar onset, but having worked in the psychiatric field for six years, I have bounced it around with psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, and it makes sense to them. Her post-partum depression became so severe, she had to be hospitalized. All throughout my childhood she was hospitalized for long periods of time, and often given electroshock therapy to help with the depressions. Her manic phases were short, irratic periods.
My bipolar disorder is more manic phase, less depression, when meds aren't stable.
In any event, grieving people often need the help of professionals.

Janette, Cluny is right. Time does not in itself heal, but when your loved one is gone, you do need time to heal.
you will feel bad for a while, nothing wrong with that, for the person was very important for you. You'll have to accept that, remember the person, wait for your mind to heal

\\My Mother did not suffer from bipolar disorder till after her third pregnancy. The post-partum depression she had after that child was born brought with it bipolar disorder which has impacted her, and my entire family, for the past 54 years.\\
I don't understand the relationship between PPD and bi-polar disorder, but I do know that PPD is real.
Considering that most forms of depression have a physical basis, it's not surprising, with the changes in pregnancy and involution (as the return to a non-gestational state is called) that there might be depression with it.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

I echo what Cluny said. The grieving process takes time, and sometimes requires the help of professionals.

There are varying degrees and types of depression from just minor disappointment, to grieving and to acute manic depression which is a serious mental illness. Most types of depression are self curable or will go away after a period of grieving but in the case of acute manic depression clinical treatment from clinical psychologist and Nero Psychiatrist are necessary and combined with medication to manage the condition. Regrettable there are many individuals who cannot qualify for treatment for lack of insurance or non qualification for assistance programs and they pose a potential risk to themselves and those in proximity to them on a recurring basis as they can have a manic episode resulting in self destruction or injury to others.

It is said that, What does not destroy us, serves to make us stronger. Our memories are a record of the life we lived with the person we loved, and I know that one day every wrong will be made right. We work through depression by praying and giving thanks to Jesus, through Christian songs and Christian music, and getting more exposure to natural sunlight. Embrace the love of Jesus, and let his Holy Spirit surround you and fill you with his grace.

I know one person who was even raging mad at God, but ones said she knew the Lord, and they prayed for her. Then, I understand, she started seeing how her husband brought his death on himself, had been a bad example to youths, by smoking and not quitting . . .
She started just seeing how things really are, I guess, and now she's bubbling . . . cluck cluck cluck mother henning the baby chicks that she has now, doing the caring that she can do (c:
Being busy loving . . . "can" be good.

Day by day, hour by hour with lots of prayer to Jesus.
Talk to Jesus as much as you can. Tell him how badly you are hurting. Ask Him to heal the pain deep inside of you.
Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart.
Cry out to Jesus and ask Him to heal you. Tell him how badly you are hurting..do this daily. He will eventually answer you.

In the case of grieving, time is the main thing.
Depression is part of the grieving process. Allow yourself time to grieve, and don't condemn yourself for it. Nowhere does the Bible say that Christians are going to be happy, happy, happy up on Feel-Good Mountain all the time.
You also need to give yourself time to adjust to "the new normal."
If you need help--medical, psychological, or emotional support at this time--don't be afraid of asking for it.
You are not the first one to be in this position, You will survive, conquer, and thrive.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
