What causes severe depression in a diabetic patient?

I am 72, in good health, Diabetic under control and recently moved from Nashville to Vancouver., WA
I left my four children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren...... My mother had lived with me for the last 50 years of her life....but she had to go to a nursing home right before I moved. I lost my home of 26 years (a 3 bedroom, 3 bath beautiful townhouse) because I could no longer afford it, as it took both my social security and my Mother's social security to meet our living expenses. I love living in Vancouver, but have always been sort of shy and didn't socialize much. Lately I have began being sad, depressed and out of sorts. I think it is because all my family is back in Nashville and I am not. Do I need some kind of pill to get rid of these blues? Thank you, and there is no rush on your getting back to me. God Bless You
