Yes, it is very normal to get depressed if you don't have your kids. It is normal to get depressed while going thru a divorce, period. It's a life changing event, and even if you are the one who wants it, and even initiates it, it can still bring you down. If you feel like the depression is extreme or is making it difficult to live your life, consider seeing your doctor or a counselor. I hope things improve for you.
