    Yes I reckon it is.  As we recover your mood can be up and down and even after 6 months or longer something can throw you, especially at this 'early time'.  Accept how you're feeling for the time being, carry on as you did before and it'll pass in time.

    Hope all goes as well as expected at the funeral.

      6 months is kind of still early - some people are still struggling by this time, some half way there and some are better.  You said you felt loads better til the other day?  I think by 6 months it's still normal for your mood to be fluctuating, and especially if you've had a bereavement recently.

      I'm sure when you're back into your normal routine it will settle down again.

    Yeah, got to remember, sometimes to feel down will be natural, especially in this case.You dont want the medsto strip you of all emotion

    I agree with katecogs.  Your mood will most certainly lighten after the funeral. The medication doesn't remove all feeling and you would expect to feel down following a bereavement.  It's a blip and once things settle again, so will your frame of mind.  Take care,
