I think if some of the ordinary responses to loss are going on for a prolonged period. So if… people will often find that they can’t eat or sleep properly, that they’re losing weight, that they don’t want to go on with life in the way that they used to, that they don’t want to go to work, that they’re withdrawing into themselves, that’s quite ordinary. But if that goes on for a prolonged period, it might be a sign that actually is developing into a depression, or that there’s something getting stuck in the grieving process. So if you have… can sense that it’s going on longer or that you’re really, really struggling to adjust to the loss and start focussing your energy on other areas of life than the loss of the person, then that might be a time to seek therapy.
