This post is intended to assist those coping with the end of the Harry Potter series. Other posts in this series will follow daily, until we reach ACCEPTANCE, the final stage of grief. You can find the intro to the series HERE. Part 1 is here, Part 2 is here, and Part 3 is here.
Depression is the fourth stage of grief and it refers to a state of melancholia, unhappiness or sadness, or to a relatively minor downturn in mood that may last only a few hours or days.
Fans are depressed, because their Potterverse is coming to an end. How depressed? There is a Facebook group called “After Harry Potter Seven Comes Out I Won’t Have Anything To Live For” :

If they want to see magic, a few rounds of Zoloft, not the Harry Potter Ecstasy pills , will do the trick. Remember, just because the ecstasy pills bear Harry’s initials doesn’t mean they’re endorsed by the Ministry of Magic.
Depressed fans who are pregnant, nursing, or toddlers can’t use Zoloft, but there’s another way of overcoming their doldrums. Music can be used to treat depression, according to The Anatomy of Melancholy. That is what makes today’s Inspirational Video For Potter Fans At This Stage critical. Potter fans may feel depressed and alone. They need to hear that somewhere, there is someone who feels just as lonely:
