Your new little one sounds cute. I like her name Maggie Mai. My chihuahua is named Princess and she sure acts like one. She is the light of my life. She sleeps with me all the time and I find a lot of comfort in that. Her little body gives off just enough heat so that if my Raynauds is acting up she warms me up.
I am so sorry you are feeling so depressed. It is a horrible feeling to have I know. I started taking Cymbalta this year for pain and depression. My doctor said I need to stay on it until I retire. I'm only 50 so that may be awhile. She said it will help me with the stress of being sick and the stress from my job. I have to say that it has helped tremendously. I still have days when I feel really depressed but I still get up and go.
Don't feel like you don't have friends. We are all your friends here. If you would like to email me personally I would be willing to email back and be email buddies. I would love to hear about Ireland. I am of Irish descent, my grandmother spoke a little Gaelic. I have no idea what part of Ireland my family is from though. Anyway, take care of yourself and have fun with your new dog. They are such good company and very loyal.
Hope you feel better,
