Depressed after death of dog
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

My dog died earlier this month at the age of 16 and I've been depressed ever since. I lived with him alone in my flat. Over the time he was with me both my parents died and I never got married so I feel like I'm alone in the world. His death has lead to grief but I also realized that as a 47 year old, that dog was my only real connection left in this world since I don't have any close friends at all. I don't see a point in such a life and I feel like I'm too old to change.
