I have chronic pain and have been depressed for a long time. Lately I have felt that I feel ok for maybe like 3 days and then I'm back to this hopelessness and just almost to the point of not being able to function on a daily basis. I then feel ok (not great) again for a few more days. I feel like I'm really going crazy sometimes. It's not like I'm manic or anything.... I just don't understand this??
Does anyone have any advice or ideas? I do plan on making an appointment with my doctor but it's going to be like one month away or so, and he really doesn't seem to be able to help me or understand me. I need to find a new doctor I think.
