and at least for me, that is where the problem lies...they do not tell us and the years go by and suddenly, you have this laundry list of medications you are taking that cause worsening of depression, drug hangovers in the morning, significant weight gain and on and on. I know, I'm on my soapbox again and I don't mean to offend or hurt anyone. I really am trying to help others. I've been in some dark hole for the past 22 years, or at least 15 years and I am suddenly waking up and realizing all this.
be well

Reach out and touch someone.  If they don't touch you back it's because you still  have brownie batter on your face.

Sad...but true in too many cases. We are willing to try what is out there looking for
relief and before we know it another med is added to our list. Still praying for a cure!
