Bopeep, are you feeling less depressed now, or the same?
I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. Be sure to do things for yourself that make you feel good: A bubble bath, a walk, a movie, whatever gives you pleasure and isn't harmful.
Hi, NasaLady/JoAnn, and welcome to the forum! I would normally suggest that you start a new topic to introduce yourself and your situation, but since you have AIH and are in the AIH thread with others who have the same problem, you will probably be okay as you are. We just don't want anyone new who posts to be overlooked.
I see you have Raynaud's. I do, also, but not AIH. I have chronic, active hep C and cirrhosis and am a liver cancer survivor.
thanks joann.hope things look up for you and hopefully get better soon
you have been through a lot hep93.hope you are doing ok
cj7, I slept most of Aug. away after having a revision of my rt. hip. Bad enough to go through major surgery, but with underlying hep C and cirrhosis...all I wanted to do was sleep. So I hear ya! Thanks for checking in with us and keeping us updated. I hope that your hepatologist can make some suggestions to point you towards feeling better.
Cindy, I don't think people really understand unless they're going through the same thing. That is why this forum is such a terrific place--we understand each other. I am fortunate to have a long-term b.f. who is willing to listen and has his own medical problems, so I think that makes him a little more understanding than most. But it's the people on this forum who I know really "get it."
As for depression, I've always found that doing something--anything nondestructive--helps to get out of it or minimize it, especially if you are doing something for somebody else.
