Hi Amanda, you have taken a big step in just posting here. You have left out alot of information though. Such as, what meds have you been on, have you been evaluated by a psychiatrist and seen a conselor? There are many factors in why a person is non-responsive to medications. Everyone responds differantly to differant medications. You mentioned that you have many health problems so you are probley on multiple medications for this am I correct? I would first make an appointment to be seen with a psychiatrist to see if there is something that would work better for you. I also have this same problem with depression and multiple health related issues. I take all kinds of medical medications and had also suffered for many years with depression. It wasnt the last 6 months or so that I was finally pushed by my doctor and mom into seeing a psychiatrist while I was in the hospital for a pacemaker inplant (I am 32 yrs old). He shifted some of my meds around and I feel so much better now. I also try to stay busy by crocheting, reading and walking when I can. Keeping the mind occupied is important.
Welcome to healing well......
Yeah I do see a conselor which has helped some. I am 19, I have depression, asthma, IBS, Interstial cystis, arthritis, two cracked virtabre in my back, and I am seeing a physical therepist for pelvic pain that is possibley caused from a Muscle that is in the pelvic region, and I also suffer from migraines. I am currently on 6 medications and really run down. I went from 117 lbs before I had surgery to 95 lbs currently. I try to keep my mind occupied with working full time and school full time.
