Dear retiree,

It is possible that you have feelings of sadness because you are adjusting to the loss of your job, being a retiree requires that you transition to a new life which may include a different financial and social setting or status. It is important, however to distinguish true depressive episode from a life adjustment process. Your primary care physician or internist should be able to screen for major depressive symptoms and refer you to a specialist and/or discuss your treatment options. Other persons that can help will include, family members, clergy or co-workers/friends. In addition, you may look for a list of providers within your area at websites like psychology today or the american academy of psychiatry. If you have insurance or medicare they also have personnel that can help you find a provider, by calling the insurance customer telephone number. It is important that you don't delay in calling your primary care physician or explore these sources of providers so that you can get the attention you need.

Regards,

Dr. SGL
