I didn't see your OP either but I hate when no one responds, it's a horrible feeling. I actually opened this thread because I think I have some depression related to a chronic illness. I have no idea if that's at all what your thread was about. If you are up to sharing again, either here or through PM, I would definitely like to listen. If not, understandable... and more big hugs to you...
Saw the title and clicked - didn't realize it was you, Babygrant! You're probably getting tired of hearing from me
I had pretty severe depression during the gallbladder issues. Pretty much cried every day, or every other day. Its hard to be in that much discomfort, not get to experience any joy, have restricted activities, and NOT feel depressed. And on top of that I felt like a pretty darn inadequate mom, which contributed to depression.
Think of the joy you will feel when you finally feel better, if you can. And allow yourself the emotions you currently have. They are completely understandable.
I also found that using the anti-nausea medications or pain meds increased the depression. My mood was better when I did not need to use them. I think they must have a depressant effect. I'm not suggesting that you not take meds - but my main point is THIS WILL PASS! And even amidst the days of depression, you will have hours and sometimes a day or more where the depression lifts, like a breath of fresh air; relish it as much as you can.
This WILL end. Hang in there. Its almost November.
I'll NEVER get tired of hearing from you!
I haven't taken the gravol in over 36 hours!!! I had been taking it for over 2 1/2 months every single day, sometimes twice, something three times a day! And no percoset in about 3 weeks. Pain is there, nausea kind of lingers, but I managed to get out trick or treating for 3 hours with my kids and haven't had any severe feelings of depression in over a week. Period is coming soon, so we'll see how the horrible PMS is.
That is fantastic. Especially the trick or treating part
Did you start acupuncture or see a naturopath, or is this something that's happening naturally?
