What is the difference between depression and a simple case of "the blues? "It's perfectly healthy to feel sad from time to time. It is normal for our emotions and behaviors to react to situations involving disappointment, stress and loss on occasion, and it would be abnormal not to react to these types of situations.In a healthy person, periods of sadness, moodiness or melancholy should fade as time passes or as the person learns to cope with the issues behind his/her emotions.
