Just want you to know that you did a courageous thing :) I'm sorry you are suffering - both mentally and physically. Like you said, depression can be worse than the other stuff. Believe me - I know.
I know you probably know this - but when I feel like you do, I just focus on my kids. I know that no matter how much I personally want to "give up" - I just don't have that option. No matter how you look at it - your kids are better off with you than without you. They need a mom. I have to tell myself that a lot - that even on my worst day...at least they have a mom that loves them and is trying. That's all you can do. I remember days where I just wanted to get in bed and never get out. There WERE days that I was in bed for days at a time. I was so depressed that I am so ill and in pain. I finally got to the point where I needed to make a choice. Even with the HUGE depression, I decided to make little goals (although, for me, they were HUGE tasks). I decided to get out of bed, even if I just made it to the couch. I decided to take a shower each morning (even though the shower worsened my heart condition) and get dressed in comfy clothes.
I can't tell you how little things like this made the biggest change in life around here. My kids saw me fighting through the pain, illness and depression. But it was ONLY because of them that I was able to do it.
Don't know if this helps...but just focus on your little ones... AND try to find the best doctors you can find. It is very important. Hang in there, Jennifer --Tina

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
Your post reads running out of meds AGAIN,
If this is true, then that is probably why you are having a problem. I have never been reschedualed without being seen by a covering doctor or been in touch with my primary doctor who would then prescribe scrips untill your doctor will be available.
But like ekkorose said your primary should be able to call your prescribing pain doc and solve your problem.
P.S. Great job helping out people in the accident.
