You are so obviously reaching out, so hang on sweet Gem and we will help you. OK?
First of all you have no reason to feel ashamed. You have done nothing wrong. Depression isn't caused by personal weakness, laziness or lack of willpower.
The Depression is an illness and you are trying to battle it alone. I know you have been to therapy but Gem, please tell your Pdoc exactly how you feel. Now is not the time to hold back. You have to share those scary thoughts and your feelings with your Pdoc. You have to be honest. It is not easy for the professionals to help you if they are missing pieces of the puzzle.
You have had a lot of changes in your life recently, your friends death, your wedding and of course dealing with your Mom and your health issues.
Give yourself the credit you deserve by making it through each of those life altering situations. Talk this through with your Pdoc and with us.
We care and we are here for you 24/7. You are a special person, Gem and I care about you. So stay with us, please.
Thank you Gem for picking up that phone and asking for help. I am sending you the worlds largest ball of twine to help you stay in one piece .
Rest now and it will work out. ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))
You really do need to tell your doctor everything right now. If you are afraid you will get in there and not be able to open up and say everything you need to say, what do you think about writing it out and taking it with you just in case you can't say it? She can't help you if she doesn't have all the information.
You have been through so much and with your health situation, who wouldn't fall apart. There is certainly not anything to be ashamed of.
Please remember how much we love you on this forum. So, please take good care of yourself.
With love and prayers,
Hi Gem, I just wanted to lend my love and support to you also. Hang in there sweets and know we all are here for you anytime.
Super BIG HUGS
