Dear Amanda, my friend, you are thrown into a tailspin by this new disease, you are caring for 3 children and you have had some family issues this week. You have every right to be rattled, upset and yes, depressed. This is not what you planned for your life and now you are looking at possible surgery.
I think seeing your physician for depression is a great idea. Anything that will help you deal with change and help you is good. Using the online support is awesome as you can write it down, send it off and someone somewhere will hear what you have to say and understand how you feel.Most important is to be kind to yourself, allow yourself to accept that yes, you do feel bad, you have a right too. Rest and try to eat healthy. Ask questions here as everyone is so knowledgable and know that we care about you. Your in our prayers and on our minds. You are not alone in this. Gentle Hugs (((((((((HUGS)))))))))))Kitt
