since i've been in such pain for quite awhile now, is it normal that i'm in a funk...feeling overly anti-social...feeling like EVERY single thing i do is an accomplishment, yet at the same time not enough?  rolleyes i've been really down for the past 3 days and keep hoping that i'll wake up renewed, but it's not happening. shakehead
thanks in advance

I'm sorry you are feeling so bad.  After awhile the pain just gets to you.  Your depressed and understandable.  Talk with your doctor, maybe an antidepressant would help.  I know I was depressed after being in pain for so long and no one had answers for me.  I started to feel better soon after I started my meds.  I felt less pain, actually got some sleep and best of all started to smile again.  It's not the answer for everyone but it's worth a try if your feeling so down.  I'm sure others will have advice for you but know that we are all here to listen and help!

I hope you feel better soon!

Hi Hurting,

I think that is a good idea about you talking to your doctor. Having chronic pain is enough to depress anybody. I take antidepressants too and they have really helped me.

I hope that the meds work for you. Let us know.

Best wishes for a wonderful day,

hugs, ...Karen
